.DISCUSSION...

Strong south winds this morning will be replaced by a lighter breeze
and increasing low level humidity as low pressure develops to the
south. This will also result in increased clouds and shower
development. While generally not anticipating widespread heavy
rainfall, these conditions will at least help mitigate fire weather
conditions going into the weekend.

...HIGH FIRE DANGER...

The grassland fire danger index will reach the high category
this afternoon. Unfavorable weather conditions or a low
moisture content of grasses and other dry organic material
on the ground indicate that there is a high
potential for a fire occurrence. Outdoor burning should be
restricted to early morning or evening hours when wind speeds
are usually lower and the relative humidity is higher.

The outlook for Friday afternoon...The grassland fire danger index
will reach the moderate category.
