...ENHANCED RISK OF FIRE SPREAD THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON...

THE COMBINATION OF LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY LEVELS AND INCREASING
SOUTHERLY FLOW TODAY WILL RESULT IN CONDITIONS FAVORABLE FOR THE
RAPID SPREAD OF BRUSH FIRES. FORTUNATELY...LARGER FUELS ARE STILL
MOIST ENOUGH THOUGH THAT THERE WILL BE LIMITED SPREAD INTO THEM.

RH VALUES WILL BE LOWEST LATE THIS MORNING THROUGH THE EARLY
AFTERNOON...DROPPING INTO THE 20S ACROSS THE AREA. WINDS WILL BE
LIGHT THIS MORNING...INCREASING THIS AFTERNOON TO 15 TO 20 MPH
WITH GUSTS 25 TO 30 MPH.

THE RISK WILL DIMINISH BY THIS EVENING AS RH VALUES INCREASE AND
THE WINDS BEGIN TO DIMINISH.

IF YOU SPOT A FIRE OR SMOKE PLUME...PLEASE REPORT IT TO THE
AUTHORITIES IMMEDIATELY.
