...HAZARD LEGEND...

*FIRE WEATHER*
EXTREME...VERY STRONG WINDS IN EXCESS OF RED FLAG WARNING
 CONDITIONS COMBINED WITH LIMITED TO MODERATE HUMIDITY. FIRES
 WILL SPREAD QUICKLY AND SPOT FIRES ARE COMMON. FIRE CONTROL IS
 VERY DIFFICULT DUE TO STRONG WINDS.
SIGNIFICANT...OPEN BURNING SHOULD NOT BE ATTEMPTED. HIGH
 WINDS AND EXTREME DRY PERIODS LEAD TO EXTREME BURNING
 CONDITIONS. OPEN FIRES CAN QUICKLY ESCAPE AND ARE VERY
 DIFFICULT TO CONTROL, EVEN FOR EXPERIENCED FIREFIGHTERS.
 CONDITIONS CAN MEET MINIMUM CONDITIONS FOR RED FLAG WARNINGS
 IN MOST CASES.
ELEVATED...ANY OPEN BURNING IS DISCOURAGED DUE TO INCREASED
 WIND AND LOWER HUMIDITY, EXCEPT BY EXPERIENCED FIRE
 PERSONNEL. INCREASING WINDS AND LOWER HUMIDITY CONTRIBUTE TO
 DRYING FUELS. FIRES ESCAPE CONTROL MORE EASILY AND
 CONTAINMENT IS DIFFICULT FOR INEXPERIENCED FIRE PERSONNEL.
 APPROACHING RED FLAG CONDITIONS.
LIMITED...OPEN BURNING IS USUALLY SAFE WITH PROPER CONTAINERS
 AND PRECAUTIONS UNDER LIMITED FIRE DANGER CONDITIONS.
