The combination of low relative humidity levels of 20 to 30 percent, and strong winds 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 30 to 35 mph, will result in elevated fire danger conditions mainly this afternoon across central NC. Recent rains have put a damper on most fire weather concerns. However, the dry winds of Wednesday into today may bring enough drying to offset the wet conditions. Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged. Any grass or brush fires that occur may quickly spread if left unattended. If you do burn, exercise extreme caution and have fire suppression equipment close by. $$ Badgett
