Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western Maine and New Hampshire
National Weather Service Gray ME
322 AM EDT Mon Apr 23 2018

.DISCUSSION...
More warm and dry weather is expected today. With similar conditions
expected but slightly warmer temperatures, minimum RH values should
fall into the upper teens again. Winds will be light however with
high pressure centered nearly overhead. Afternoon sea breeze may
allow for a localized window of increased fire danger as winds
shift, though RH values will also increase. Increasing temperatures
and dewpoints are expected Tuesday. RH values will still remain
below 30 percent, especially away from the coast and Midcoast ME.
Fire danger may be higher than today due to increasing southerly
winds.
