...Enhanced Fire Danger Friday...

A dry air mass will combine with increasing northwesterly winds
to create conditions conducive for fire spread on Friday. Relative
humidity is expected to decrease to 30 to 35 percent during this
time, with winds gusting 20 to 25 mph. These conditions would
likely aid fire spread if ignition occurs.
