...INCREASED FIRE DANGER TODAY...

SOUTHWEST WINDS SUSTAINED AT 15 MPH WITH GUSTS UP TO 25 MPH
COMBINED WITH TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER 70S TO LOWER 80S AND
RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES AS LOW AS 25 TO 30 PERCENT WILL RESULT IN
AN INCREASED FIRE DANGER THIS AFTERNOON.

AN INCREASED FIRE DANGER MEANS THAT WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL
CREATE A SITUATION IN WHICH FIRE CAN RAPIDLY GROW AND SPREAD OUT
OF CONTROL. OUTDOOR BURNING IS HIGHLY DISCOURAGED. RESIDENTS ARE
URGED TO EXERCISE EXTRA CAUTION WHILE HANDLING OR WORKING WITH ANY
POTENTIAL IGNITION SOURCE.
