INCREASING WINDS TODAY WILL COMBINE WITH LOWERING RELATIVE
HUMIDITY AND INCREASING TEMPERATURES LEADING TO AN INCREASING
POTENTIAL FOR WIND DRIVEN FIRE BEHAVIOR...MAINLY FOR GRASS AND OTHER
FINE VEGETATION. SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL INCREASE TO 20 TO 30 MPH WITH
GUSTS TO 40 MPH IN SOME AREAS. THE MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY WILL
RANGE FROM 10 TO 20 PERCENT. HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY WILL BE AROUND
70 DEGREES.

IF YOU PLAN ON BURNING TODAY...KEEP IN MIND THE WIND COULD INCREASE
AFTER YOUR FIRE IS ALREADY LIT LEADING TO A POTENTIAL FOR YOUR BURN
TO GET OUT OF CONTROL. PLEASE MONITOR CURRENT WEATHER CONDITIONS AND
CHECK WEATHER FORECASTS AND UPDATES BEFORE YOU INITIATE ANY BURNING
TODAY.
