...ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL TODAY...

AREA FIRE MANAGERS HAVE ADVISED THAT THERE IS AN ELEVATED FIRE
WEATHER POTENTIAL FOR TODAY.

SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND WILL BE VERY DRY TODAY WITH MINIMUM RELATIVE
HUMIDITY VALUES IN THE TEENS AND LOW 20S THIS AFTERNOON. THIS
COMBINED WITH EXTREMELY LOW FUEL MOISTURE WILL RESULT IN ELEVATED
FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL TODAY. THIS INCLUDES HIGH IGNITION
POTENTIAL. WINDS WILL REMAIN BELOW RED FLAG CRITERIA TODAY...BUT
THE EXCEPTIONAL DRYNESS REMAINS A CONCERN.
