GRASS FIRE DANGER STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORT WORTH TX
429 AM CDT FRI SEP 15 2017

...ELEVATED FIRE THREAT THIS AFTERNOON ALONG AND WEST OF A LINE
FROM JACKSBORO TO MINERAL WELLS TO HAMILTON...

THE COMBINATION OF HOT TEMPERATURES NEARING 100 DEGREES, BREEZY
SOUTH TO SOUTH-SOUTHEAST WINDS OF 12-20 MPH WITH SLIGHTLY HIGHER
GUSTS, AND HUMIDITY VALUES FALLING INTO THE 20S WILL RESULT IN AN
ELEVATED FIRE THREAT IN OUR WESTERN COUNTIES THIS AFTERNOON. THE
FUELS IN THIS AREA CONTINUE TO REMAIN DRY DUE TO A LACK OF RAIN
THE PAST FEW WEEKS, AND ANY FIRE THAT IS ABLE TO START MAY SPREAD
QUICKLY. CONDITIONS SHOULD IMPROVE AROUND SUNSET.

EXTREME CARE IS URGED DURING ALL OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES WHERE THERE
IS A POTENTIAL FOR GRASS FIRES TO GET STARTED. AVOID OUTSIDE
BURNING AND WELDING. DO NOT TOSS LIT CIGARETTE BUTTS OUTSIDE.
REPORT WILD FIRES TO THE NEAREST FIRE DEPARTMENT OR LAW
ENFORCEMENT OFFICE QUICKLY.
