..OUTDOOR BURNING STRONGLY DISCOURAGED TODAY AND MONDAY...

HOT...DRY...WINDY AND UNSTABLE CONDITIONS AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING
STORM SYSTEM WILL CREATE AN UNFAVORABLE BURNING ENVIRONMENT THIS
AFTERNOON AS ANY FIRES THAT START COULD QUICKLY BECOME
UNCONTROLLABLE. CONDITIONS WORSEN ON MONDAY AS THE WIND SPEEDS
INCREASE ACROSS THE AREA AND A COLD FRONT MOVING THROUGH IN THE
AFTERNOON CAUSES A SUDDEN WIND SHIFT.

PLEASE BE EXTRA CAUTIOUS WITH FIRE THIS AFTERNOON AND AGAIN ON
MONDAY. BE MINDFUL OF WHAT COULD CAUSE A SPARK...NOT ALL SOURCES
ARE OBVIOUS...FOR INSTANCE...DO NOT PARK A TRUCK OR ATV IN TALL
GRASS AND BE SURE THAT YOU SECURE ANY CHAINS INVOLVED IN TOWING A
VEHICLE. SOME OF THE MORE OBVIOUS SOURCES INCLUDE ABANDONED
CAMPFIRES...WELDING...AND AGRICULTURAL BURNING.
