...DRY CONDITIONS AND INCREASED FIRE RISK CONTINUE FRIDAY...

Friday will see another dry day with relative humidity lowering
to 25-35 percent by the afternoon and temperatures rising to
70-75 degrees. Light northerly drainage winds are expected in the
morning followed by a southerly sea breeze increasing to 10-15 mph
in the afternoon. The sea breeze will likely cause RH to rise
above threat levels. Wet weather pattern will return over the
weekend.

Fine fuels such as beach grasses are the most susceptible at this
time.
