Special Weather Statement


SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT

CTZ005>008-192200-
NORTHERN FAIRFIELD-NORTHERN NEW HAVEN-NORTHERN MIDDLESEX-
NORTHERN NEW LONDON-
109 PM EDT Thu Oct 19 2017

A dry air mass will combine with increasing southwesterly winds
to create conditions more conducive for fire spread during the
afternoon and evening. Relative humidity is expected to decrease
to 30 to 35 percent during this time, while wind gusts increase
to 20 to 25 mph. These conditions would likely aid fire spread if
ignition occurs.

...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.

...Gusty Winds And Dry Weather Raise Fire Weather Concerns Today...

Fire officials in Vermont advise against any open burning today.
The lack of precipitation this month has led to fuels such as
leaves...grass...and small brush to become very dry across all of
Vermont. Winds today will gust in the 15 to 25 mph range and
humidities will be lowering in the afternoon. All of these factors
will increase the potential for any fires that do start to spread
quickly and become more difficult to contain.

...Elevated Fire Weather Potential This Afternoon...

Dry conditions persist across southern New England with the
overall recent lack of precipitation. South to southwest winds
will gust to around 25 miles per hour this afternoon. There is a
chance of a few 25 to 30 mph gusts toward 4 or 5 pm. These winds
will combine with relatively warm temperatures in the low to mid
70s and within a dry airmass to yield minimum relative humidity
values of 30 to 35 percent. This will lead to an elevated fire
weather potential through this afternoon.

On Friday, northwest winds are only expected to gust to 20 mph,
but it still will be dry with minimum relative humidity values near
30 percent, so we will be close to having an elevated risk for
fire potential as well.

...Elevated Fire Weather Potential This Afternoon...

Dry conditions persist with an overall lack of rainfall across
the region. Southwest winds will increase to 10 to 20 mph with
highest gusts possible this afternoon. These winds will coincide
with many areas across New Hampshire and adjacent westernmost
Maine having relative humidity values in the 30 to 40 percent
range. These conditions, in combination with very little rainfall
recently, will lead to elevated fire weather potential this
afternoon.

Very dry conditions are possible on Friday as well under
northwest breezes.
