...INCREASED FIRE DANGER THIS AFTERNOON...

INCREASING SOUTHWEST WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL
COMBINE TO ELEVATE THE THREAT FOR WILDFIRES THIS AFTERNOON.

PEOPLE ARE DISCOURAGED FROM DOING ANY OUTDOOR BURNING THIS
AFTERNOON...AS ANY FIRES COULD SPREAD QUICKLY. REPORT ANY
WILDFIRES IMMEDIATELY BY CALLING 911. ALSO CALL LAW ENFORCEMENT IF
YOU SEE ANY SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES...THAT COULD LEAD TO A FIRE.

RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL DROP BELOW 30 PERCENT...AND
SUSTAINED WINDS OF 10-15 MPH WITH GUSTS OVER 20 MPH...WILL BE
COMMON ACROSS THE ENTIRE AREA THIS AFTERNOON.

THIS EVENING...WINDS WILL SUBSIDE AND THE RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL
RISE...MAKING CONDITIONS LESS THREATENING. THEN ON
FRIDAY...HUMIDITY VALUES WILL NOT BE AS LOW AS READINGS TODAY.
