...GUSTY WINDS AND AN ENHANCED FIRE DANGER THIS AFTERNOON...

SUSTAINED WINDS OUT OF THE SOUTH-SOUTHWEST WILL BE 15 TO 25 MPH
WITH GUSTS TO AROUND 35 MPH THROUGH THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY
EVENING HOURS AS A COLD FRONT APPROACHES FROM THE NORTHWEST. THESE
WIND SPEEDS MAY CAUSE DIFFICULT DRIVING CONDITIONS FOR HIGH
PROFILE VEHICLES TRAVELING ON EAST-WEST ORIENTED ROADWAYS.

IN ADDITION TO THE GUSTY WINDS...RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL
FALL INTO THE 25 TO 35 PERCENT RANGE THIS AFTERNOON. THESE VALUES
COMBINED WITH THE GUSTY WINDS WILL LEAD TO AN ENHANCED FIRE
DANGER THIS AFTERNOON. FIRES THAT START MAY QUICKLY SPREAD OUT OF
CONTROL. CONSIDER POSTPONING ANY OUTDOOR BURNING UNTIL CONDITIONS
IMPROVE.
