...GUSTY WINDS AND INCREASED FIRE DANGER REST OF TODAY...

Southwest winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts 30 to 35 mph are common
this afternoon and will continue through the early evening hours.
Some gusts approaching 40 mph will be possible. This may create
difficult travel for high profile vehicles on east-west oriented
roadways such as Interstate 64. In addition, light outdoor objects
may be blown around.

The warm temperatures and strong winds will also result in low
relative humidity values and an increased fire danger east of I-65.
Fires could become difficult to control in these conditions.
Consider postponing outdoor burning, but if you must burn, use
extra caution.
