...ENHANCED THREAT FOR THE SPREAD OF WILDFIRES SUNDAY...

A DRY COLD FRONT WILL CROSS THE AREA OVERNIGHT. WINDS WILL PICK UP
BEHIND THE FRONT ON SUNDAY...WHICH WILL RESULT IN DRY AND BLUSTERY
CONDITIONS. WESTERLY WINDS WILL BE SUSTAINED AROUND 15 MPH WITH
FREQUENT GUSTS AROUND 25 TO 30 MPH ACROSS CENTRAL VIRGINIA SUNDAY
AFTERNOON.

DUE TO THE WINDS...THE RELATIVE HUMIDITY WILL DROP TO BETWEEN 25
TO 35 PERCENT. THESE WINDY AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL ALLOW FUELS TO
DRY OUT FURTHER. FINER FUELS WILL DRY OUT FIRST. THE COMBINATION
OF GUSTY WINDS...LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY AND RELATIVELY LOW FUEL
MOISTURE WILL ENHANCE THE THREAT FOR SPREAD OF WILDFIRES.

OPEN BURNING OF ANY TYPE IS CONSIDERED VERY HAZARDOUS THIS TIME OF
YEAR. ACCIDENTAL ESCAPED DEBRIS BURNS ARE THE NUMBER ONE CAUSE OF
WILDFIRES.

...ENHANCED FIRE DANGER ON SUNDAY...

A MAINLY DRY COLD FRONT WILL PASS SOUTHEAST THROUGH THE REGION
OVERNIGHT FOLLOWED BY BUILDING HIGH PRESSURE ON SUNDAY. THE
GRADIENT BEHIND THE FRONT BETWEEN LOW PRESSURE WELL TO THE NORTH
AND THE HIGH TO THE WEST WILL CAUSE INCREASING NORTHWEST WINDS BY
SUNDAY MORNING. THESE WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN STRONG AND
GUSTY ESPECIALLY ALONG AND JUST EAST OF THE BLUE RIDGE INTO LATE
SUNDAY AFTERNOON. THIS IN COMBINATION WITH THE MIXING OF MUCH
DRIER AIR TO THE SURFACE AND HEATING WILL CAUSE SMALLER FUELS SUCH
AS LEAF LITTER AND GRASSES TO DRY FURTHER. THIS WILL LIKELY LEAD
TO ENHANCED FIRE DANGER ESPECIALLY BY SUNDAY AFTERNOON WHEN
NORTHWEST WINDS GUSTING AS HIGH AS 35 MPH COULD RESULT IN RAPID
FIRE SPREAD.

OUTDOOR BURNING IS STRONGLY DISCOURAGED ESPECIALLY NEAR THE BLUE
RIDGE SUNDAY WHERE FIRES ARE MORE APT TO GET OUT OF CONTROL.
REMEMBER TO USE CAUTION WHEN DISCARDING ANY SMOKING MATERIALS ON
SUNDAY.
