or concerns with this forecast.

A weak cold front will approach the region today. Winds will
increase from the southwest out ahead of this system with most
areas increasing to 15 to 20 mph with gusts as high as 30 mph.
At the same time, relative humidity values will fall to 30 to
40 percent across New Hampshire and adjacent areas along the
border in westernmost Maine. The combination of the gusty winds,
low relative humidity values and our recent dry conditions will
allow for elevated fire weather conditions today.

The front will cross the region tonight. Although the winds
will not be quite as gusty tomorrow, northwest winds will allow
for relative humidity values to be in the 30 to 35 percent range
across portions of western Maine and New Hampshire.
