ELEVATED FIRE DANGER THIS AFTERNOON

Behind a cold front this afternoon, relative humidity values will
fall to 25 to 30 percent as northwest winds gust over 30 mph.
Given dry fuels, this will elevate fire danger for several hours.
Brush and leaf burning this afternoon should be avoided if
possible, as any fires could quickly spread.
