...FIRE DANGER STATEMENT IN EFFECT FROM NOON EDT TODAY THROUGH
THIS EVENING...

Breezy winds are expected to gust near 30 mph with relative
humidity of about 25 to 30 percent this afternoon, mainly away
from the coast. Such weather conditions combined with the dryness
of fine fuels such as leaves and pine needles will lead to an
enhanced fire danger whereby any fires can easily get out of
control and spread quickly.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Please refer to your local burn permitting authorities on whether
you can burn. If you do, you are advised to use extreme caution.
