...Breezy Winds and Dry Weather Increases Fire Weather Concerns
Again on Friday...

Fire officials advise against any open burning...including
campfires on Friday across northern New York and Vermont. The
lack of precipitation this month has led to fine fuels such as
leaves...grass...and small brush to become very dry. Northwest
winds 10 to 15 mph with localized gusts 20 to 25 mph are expected
on Friday with minimum relative humidity values in the 28% to 38%
range. All of these factors will increase the potential for any
fires that do start to spread quickly and become more difficult to
contain.
