...FIRE DANGER STATEMENT IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 6 PM EST
SATURDAY...

Very dry conditions will continue across the Upstate of South
Carolina tomorrow. Temperatures warming into the upper 60s and
lower 70s combined with a very dry airmass moving into the region
will allow relative humidity values to lower to between 25 to 30
percent for several hours during the afternoon, with some
locations dropping below 25 percent. Winds will increase to
between 10 to 20 mph with gusts 20 to 30 mph. While fuels will be
marginal, the combination of winds and low relative humidity will
increase fire danger.

Please refer to your local burn permitting authorities on whether
you can burn on Saturday. If you do burn, use caution since fires
can quickly get out of hand under these conditions.
