RISK...ELEVATED.

DISCUSSION...
NORTHWEST WINDS GUSTING TO OVER 40 MILES AN HOUR AT TIMES WILL
COMBINE WITH LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES TO YIELD CONDITIONS
FAVORABLE FOR QUICK IGNITION AND RAPID AND UNCONTROLLABLY FIRE
SPREAD INTO EARLY THIS EVENING. AS WINDS BEGIN TO SUBSIDE TONIGHT
AND RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES INCREASE...FIRE DANGER WILL LESSEN SOME
DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION NOT EXPECTED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...NO HAZARDS.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
DRY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE FOR THE REST OF THE UPCOMING WEEK.
WHILE OVERALL LESS WINDY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED BEYOND TODAY...A
LIMITED FIRE DANGER RISK WILL EXIST FROM TIME TO TIME.
