...Increased fire danger east of the Blue Ridge this afternoon...

The combination of gusty winds and drier air moving in will create
conditions favoring enhanced fire growth this afternoon. Any outdoor
burning is strongly discouraged today.

Virginia residents are reminded that outdoor burning is prohibited
before 4 pm each day through April 30th. Exercise caution handling
any potential ignition source...including machinery...cigarettes...
and matches. Be sure to properly discard all smoking materials.
Any dry grasses and tree litter that ignite will have the
potential to spread quickly.
