FIRE DANGER STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
243 PM CDT WED APR 18 2018

...FIRE DANGER INCREASING THIS AFTERNOON...

BREEZY AND MUCH DRIER AIR CONTINUES TO SPREAD OVER THE MAJORITY OF
THE STATE THIS AFTERNOON IN THE WAKE OF A COLD FRONT.

BEHIND THIS BOUNDARY, WINDS ARE SHIFTING TO THE WEST/NORTHWEST
AND INCREASING TO 10 TO 20 MPH WITH HIGHER GUSTS. IN ADDITION TO
THE GUSTY WINDS, HUMIDITY HAS DROPPED INTO THE 20TH TO 30TH
PERCENTILE.

EVEN WITH RECENT RAINS, SOME FUELS HAVE DRIED OUT IN THE THOSE
AREAS THAT RECEIVED LESS RAIN. AFTER SUNSET, WINDS ARE FORECAST TO
LOWER AND RELATIVE HUMIDITIES ARE EXPECTED TO SLOWLY INCREASE,
LOWERING THE OVERALL WILD FIRE DANGER

THE ARKANSAS FORESTRY COMMISSION HAS INDICATED THAT MUCH OF THE
NORTH CENTRAL PART OF THE STATE IS IN A MODERATE THREAT OF
WILDFIRE DANGER AT THIS TIME.

GIVEN THIS INFORMATION, PEOPLE ARE ADVISED TO USE EXTRA CAUTION
WITH OUTDOOR BURNING, AND FOLLOW LOCAL COUNTY BURN BANS. IF WILD
FIRES ARE OBSERVED, REPORT THEN TO THE LOCAL FIRE DEPARTMENT OR
THE ARKANSAS FORESTRY COMMISSION AT 1-800-468-8834.
