...Increased Fire Danger Today across central North Carolina...

Gusty northwest winds, particularly through early afternoon, low
relative humidity values between 15 and 25 percent, and very dry
fine fuels will lead to an increased fire danger across central
North Carolina today.

Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged. Make certain to properly
discard any smoking material. Any dried grasses or leaves that
ignite will have the potential to quickly spread.
