...HIGH FIRE DANGER CONDITIONS EXPECTED ON SATURDAY ACROSS PORTIONS
OF SOUTH MISSISSIPPI AND CENTRAL LOUISIANA...

ACCORDING TO AREA FORESTRY COMMISSIONS AND THE US FOREST SERVICE,
RECENT DRY CONDITIONS HAVE MADE OUTDOOR BURNING INCREASINGLY
HAZARDOUS. CONDITIONS ARE SUCH THAT A SPARK FROM EQUIPMENT, THE HEAT
FROM A CATALYTIC CONVERTER, OR ANY HEAT SOURCE COULD START A GRASS
OR BRUSH FIRE. THE COMBINATION OF DRY FINE FUELS, SUCH AS GRASS, AND
LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY HAVE RESULTED IN CONTINUED FIRE DANGER ACROSS
THE REGION.

MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL RANGE FROM 20 TO 25 PERCENT
SATURDAY AFTERNOON...CREATING HIGH FIRE DANGER GIVEN THE DRY
CONDITIONS.

FIRES PLACE AREA FORESTRY COMMISSIONS, FIRE DEPARTMENTS, AND OTHER
FIRE CONTROL AGENCIES IN LIFE THREATENING SITUATIONS, AND CAN
ENDANGER COMMUNITIES. PLEASE USE CAUTION AND HELP PREVENT FOREST AND
GRASS FIRES.

...HAZARD LEGEND...

*FREEZE AND FROST*
EXTREME...HARD FREEZE (LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO 28 DEGREES) DURING
 THE GROWING SEASON WITH CATASTROPHIC DAMAGE TO UNPROTECTED
 TENDER VEGETATION.
HIGH...FREEZE EXPECTED (LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO 32 DEGREES) FOR 3
 HOURS OR MORE DURING THE GROWING SEASON WITH SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE
 TO UNPROTECTED TENDER VEGETATION.
ELEVATED...FROST EXPECTED DURING THE GROWING SEASON WITH DAMAGE
 TO UNPROTECTED TENDER VEGETATION. THIS MAY INCLUDE TEMPERATURES
 LESS THAN 32 DEGREES FOR 1-2 HOURS.
LIMITED...PATCHY FROST DURING THE GROWING SEASON WITH MINOR
 DAMAGE TO UNPROTECTED TENDER VEGETATION.

*FIRE WEATHER*
EXTREME...VERY STRONG WINDS IN EXCESS OF RED FLAG WARNING
 CONDITIONS COMBINED WITH LIMITED TO MODERATE HUMIDITY. FIRES
 WILL SPREAD QUICKLY AND SPOT FIRES ARE COMMON. FIRE CONTROL IS
 VERY DIFFICULT DUE TO STRONG WINDS.
HIGH...OPEN BURNING SHOULD NOT BE ATTEMPTED. HIGH WINDS AND
 EXTREME DRY PERIODS LEAD TO EXTREME BURNING CONDITIONS. OPEN
 FIRES CAN QUICKLY ESCAPE AND ARE VERY DIFFICULT TO CONTROL,
 EVEN FOR EXPERIENCED FIREFIGHTERS. CONDITIONS CAN MEET
 MINIMUM CONDITIONS FOR RED FLAG WARNINGS IN MOST CASES.
ELEVATED...ANY OPEN BURNING IS DISCOURAGED DUE TO INCREASED
 WIND AND LOWER HUMIDITY, EXCEPT BY EXPERIENCED FIRE
 PERSONNEL. INCREASING WINDS AND LOWER HUMIDITY CONTRIBUTE TO
 DRYING FUELS. FIRES ESCAPE CONTROL MORE EASILY AND
 CONTAINMENT IS DIFFICULT FOR INEXPERIENCED FIRE PERSONNEL.
 APPROACHING RED FLAG CONDITIONS.
LIMITED...OPEN BURNING IS USUALLY SAFE WITH PROPER CONTAINERS
 AND PRECAUTIONS UNDER LIMITED FIRE DANGER CONDITIONS.
