...HAZARD LEGEND...

*FIRE WEATHER*
Extreme...Conditions well in excess of Red Flag Warning
 criteria with strong wind gusts greater than 40 mph. Fires
 will spread very quickly and wildfires are common. Fire
 control is very difficult, even for experienced firefighters.
Significant...Conditions meet minimum Red Flag Warnings
 criteria. Open burning should not be attempted as fires can
 quickly escape and become very difficult to control, even
 for experienced firefighters.
Elevated...Any open burning is discouraged due to increased
 wind, lower humidity, and recent dry conditions. Fires
 escape control more easily in these conditions and their
 containment can be difficult. Remember to heed any local
 burn bans that are in effect!
Limited...Extra caution is advised for open burning due to
 increased wind, lower humidity, or very dry conditions.
 Remember to heed any local burn bans that are in effect!
