...Increased Fire Danger This Afternoon...

Dry weather will persist today with breezy conditions this
afternoon. These breezy dry conditions will result in the
potential for hard to contain brush fires.

With temperatures forecast in the 70s to near 80, the humidity
will drop to between 25 and 35 percent. Southwest winds of 8 to 14
mph, and gusts of 15 to 25 mph, will be common this afternoon.

Under these conditions, extra caution is advised when handling
any potential fire ignition source. Be sure to properly discard
all smoking materials. Any dry grass or tree litter that ignites
will have the potential to spread quickly.
