...INCREASED FIRE DANGER ACROSS CENTRAL NORTH CAROLINA
WEDNESDAY...

BLUSTERY NORTHWEST WINDS COMBINED WITH A VERY DRY AIR MASS WILL
CREATE CONDITIONS FAVORABLE FOR INCREASED FIRE ACTIVITY ON
WEDNESDAY. NORTHWEST WINDS GUSTING BETWEEN 20 AND 30 MPH AND
MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY BETWEEN 25 AND 30 PERCENT ARE EXPECTED.
THE DRYING EFFECTS OF THE WIND AND THE AIR WILL MAKE DEAD GRASSES
AND LEAVES POTENTIALLY COMBUSTIBLE FROM ANY IGNITION SOURCE SUCH
AS A SPARK OR DISCARDED SMOKING MATERIAL.

OUTDOOR BURNING IS STRONGLY DISCOURAGED. ANY UNATTENDED FIRE NEEDS
TO BE REPORTED IMMEDIATELY TO THE LOCAL FIRE DEPARTMENT.
