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

A very dry air mass and breezy conditions will combine with dead
and dry fuels such as grass, leaves and twigs to create the
potential for uncontrolled fire spread across western Maine and
New Hampshire. This afternoon, relative humidity values will
decrease to low levels between 20 and 30 percent. At the same time
northwest winds around 10 mph with gusts approaching 20 mph will
continue to dry fuels and increase fire spread potential. Wind
gusts are expected to diminish later this evening with increasing
relative humidity values.

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.
