...Elevated Fire Weather Potential This Afternoon...

Dry conditions persist with an overall lack of rainfall across
the region. Southwest winds will increase to 10 to 20 mph with
highest gusts possible this afternoon. These winds will coincide
with many areas across New Hampshire and adjacent westernmost
Maine having relative humidity values in the 30 to 40 percent
range. These conditions, in combination with very little rainfall
recently, will lead to elevated fire weather potential this
afternoon.

Very dry conditions are possible on Friday as well under
northwest breezes.
