...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, EXCEPT BY
 EXPERIENCED FIRE PERSONNEL. FIRES ESCAPE CONTROL MORE EASILY
 AND CONTAINMENT IS DIFFICULT FOR INEXPERIENCED FIRE PERSONNEL.
LIMITED...EXTRA CAUTION IS ADVISED FOR OPEN BURNING DUE TO
 INCREASED WIND AND LOWER HUMIDITY. BURNING WITHOUT PROPER
 CONTAINERS SHOULD NOT BE ATTEMPTED BY INEXPERIENCED FIRE
 PERSONNEL.
