...DRY CONDITIONS CREATE DANGER OF WILDFIRES...

Dry air will move into New England today behind this morning`s
cold front. By this afternoon, the relative humidity will fall to
between 25 and 35 percent. This dry air will combine with moderate
winds and a lack of recent rainfall to create conditions
favorable for rapid fire growth. Residents and visitors should
take extra precautions to prevent wildfires today.
