...INCREASED FIRE DANGER ACROSS CENTRAL NORTH CAROLINA TUESDAY
AFTERNOON...

A BREEZY SOUTHWEST WIND WILL DEVELOP TUESDAY AFTERNOON WITH GUSTS
BETWEEN 22 AND 28 MPH LIKELY. IN ADDITION...AFTERNOON
TEMPERATURES WILL WARM TO NEAR 70 OR THE LOWER 70S. THIS WILL
RESULT IN MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES BETWEEN 25 AND 30
PERCENT.

THE WARM AND DRY AIR MASS COMBINED WITH THE BREEZY SOUTHWEST
WINDS WILL CREATE CONDITIONS FAVORABLE FOR INCREASED FIRE DANGER
ACROSS CENTRAL NORTH CAROLINA.

ANY OUTDOOR BURNING SHOULD BE CLOSELY MONITORED. ANY UNATTENDED
FIRE SHOULD BE IMMEDIATELY REPORTED TO THE LOCAL FIRE DEPARTMENT.
