...Elevated Fire Weather Danger Predicted Today...

A very dry air mass over Northern and East Central portions of the
area will produce minimum afternoon relative humidities of 20 to
25 percent and breezy northwest wind gusts up to 25 mph. This
combined with remaining dead and dry fuels such as grass, leaves,
and twigs will create the potential for uncontrolled fire spread
for any outdoor fire ignitions across these areas.

Extra caution should be taken to prevent wildfires. Always
consult with local fire officials before engaging in any open
burning activities and comply with all applicable laws and
regulations. Never leave an open fire unattended and always
extinguish campfires completely before leaving.
