...ELEVATED RISK FOR WILDFIRES THIS AFTERNOON...

THE COMBINATION OF BRISK...GUSTY WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE
HUMIDITIES HAS RESULTED IN AN ELEVATED RISK FOR WILDFIRES THE
REST OF THIS AFTERNOON. ONE WILDFIRE HAS ALREADY BEEN REPORTED
NEAR NECEDAH IN CENTRAL WISCONSIN. WILDFIRES CAN START EASILY AND
SPREAD QUICKLY IN DRY GRASSES THE REST OF THIS AFTERNOON. AVOID
ALL OUTDOOR BURNING THE REST OF TODAY.

CONDITIONS WILL SLOWLY IMPROVE AFTER 6 PM AS WINDS DIMINISH AND
HUMIDITIES INCREASE.
