...High Fire Danger Again Today...

Although temperatures will not be as hot as they were yesterday,
warm and dry conditions are once again expected today.

Low humidity combined with gusty northwest winds and very dry
surface fuels will result in high fire danger across
Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and northern Connecticut.

On Tuesday, northeast winds off the ocean will result in higher
relative humidity values near the coast. Farther inland, another
day of low humidity is expected, but wind speeds will be much
lower than today.
