...Elevated Fire Weather Potential Today...

With an overall lack of rainfall across western Massachusetts and
northwest Connecticut, dry conditions persist. South to southwest
winds will gust to around 25 miles per hour today. These winds
will combine with relatively warm temperatures in the lower 70s
within a dry airmass to yield low relative humidity near 35
percent.

This will lead to elevated fire weather conditions through the
daylight hours today.
