...ENHANCED FIRE DANGER THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING...
...PATCHY FROST EXPECTED EARLY THURSDAY MORNING...

RELATIVE HUMIDITY WILL DROP TO AROUND 25 PERCENT FOR MANY LOCATIONS
LATE TODAY. THIS VERY DRY AIR WILL PRESENT AN ENHANCED WILDFIRE
DANGER DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. ANY OPEN BURNING
WILL BE POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS AND IS DISCOURAGED. IN ADDITION...
KENTUCKY STATE LAW PROHIBITS BURNING WITHIN 150 FEET OF WOODLAND OR
BRUSH LAND BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 6 AM AND 6 PM DURING THIS TIME OF
YEAR. ALSO...BE CAREFUL NOT TO DISCARD CIGARETTES IN AREAS WHERE THEY
COULD START A FIRE.

PATCHY FROST IS EXPECTED LATE TONIGHT INTO THURSDAY MORNING. IT WILL
BE MOST PREVALENT IN VALLEYS. IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO PROTECT
SENSITIVE PLANTS IN THE NORMALLY COLDER LOCATIONS.
