...BRISK NORTH WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL INCREASE
FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS THIS AFTERNOON...

RAIN SHOWERS FELL ACROSS VERMONT AND NORTHERN NEW YORK FRIDAY AND
FRIDAY NIGHT...BUT RAINFALL AMOUNTS WERE GENERALLY LESS THAN A
QUARTER OF AN INCH. THIS WAS ESPECIALLY TRUE ACROSS SOUTHERN
VERMONT WHERE RAINFALL AMOUNTS WERE VERY LIGHT. NORTH WINDS OF 10
TO 15 MPH WITH GUSTS 20 TO 25 MPH CAN BE EXPECTED TODAY. THESE
WINDS COMBINED WITH CLEARING SKIES WILL LEAD TO DRYING CONDITIONS
THIS AFTERNOON...WHEN MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITIES OF 25 TO 30
PERCENT ARE EXPECTED. THIS WILL LEAD TO AN INCREASED RISK OF FIRE
WEATHER CONCERNS THIS AFTERNOON. GIVEN THE BRISK NORTH WINDS AND
DRYING EXPECTED TODAY...ANY FIRES THAT DUE OCCUR COULD SPREAD
QUICKLY AND BE DIFFICULT TO CONTAIN. THUS...OUTSIDE BURNING IS NOT
ADVISED TODAY. AND AS A REMINDER IN NEW YORK STATE...THERE IS A
BAN ON OPEN BURNING THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF MAY.
