...FIRE DANGER STATEMENT IN EFFECT FROM NOON EDT TODAY THROUGH
THIS EVENING...

Strong and gusty winds with gusts near 30 mph will combine with
relative humidity between 20 and 25 percent this afternoon, mainly
across the eastern Midlands. These weather conditions combined
with the dryness of fine fuels such as leaves and pine needles
will lead to an enhanced fire danger whereby any fires can easily
get out of control and spread quickly.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Please refer to your local burn permitting authorities on whether
you can burn. If you do, you are advised to use extreme caution.
