...Gusty Winds and Elevated Threat for Wildfires Into the

Sustained south to southwest winds of 10 to 15 mph, with gusts of
20 to 30 mph will continue into the first part of the evening.
These gusty winds, along with rather low humidity and dry fuels,
will lead to an elevated threat for wildfires. This combination
will also enable fires to spread quickly.

In addition, winds may gust up to 30 mph on Laurel River Lake,
Lake Cumberland, and Cave Run Lake, which could lead to rough
chop for area boaters through sunset.

Conditions should improve with easing winds and rising relative
humidity toward and following sunset.
