...ENHANCED FIRE DANGER THROUGH EARLY EVENING...

THE COMBINATION OF DRY FUELS...EAST TO NORTHEAST WINDS OF 10 TO 15
MPH AND RELATIVE HUMIDITIES AROUND 25 PERCENT IS LEADING TO AN
ENHANCED FIRE DANGER THIS AFTERNOON. THESE CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED
TO PERSIST INTO THE EARLY EVENING HOURS BEFORE WINDS DECREASE AND
RELATIVE HUMIDITIES RECOVER.

THIS MEANS THAT FIRES WILL START EASILY FROM MOST CAUSES. THEY
COULD SPREAD RAPIDLY...INCREASE IN INTENSITY...AND BECOME
DIFFICULT TO CONTROL. OPEN BURNING IS DISCOURAGED AND POTENTIALLY
DANGEROUS.
