...Near Critical Relative Humidity Values and Gusty Southwest
Winds Expected this Afternoon...

Gusty southwest winds up to 20 mph this afternoon and relative
humidity values in the lower 20 percent range will create
dangerous fire weather conditions. Due to this, burning is highly
discouraged during this afternoon and into early this evening.
Winds are expected to decrease below 10 mph and relative humidity
values recover to above 40 percent by 7pm.
