...ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS TODAY FOR CONNECTICUT...

The potential for fire spread is enhanced and increasing. The
prolonged absence of wetting rains, along with moderate to severe
drought conditions, have led to very dry soil moistures and
ground fuels. Any fire that ignites will easily and rapidly spread
in these conditions. Northeast winds gusting to around 20 mph at
times will also aid in elevating the threat for fire spread
through this afternoon.
