...Elevated Fire Weather Concerns This Afternoon...

High temperatures are expected to recover into the upper 50s to
mid 60s this afternoon resulting in relative humidity values
dropping to between 20 and 25 percent. Southerly winds of 10 to
15 mph are expected to develop this afternoon with a few gusts
between 20 and 25 mph.

Area fire managers have requested that we issue a special weather
statement to mention elevated fire weather concerns given the low
relative humidity values with a bit of a southerly breeze.
