...ELEVATED RISK OF WILDFIRE SPREAD TODAY...

The combination of low relative humidity between 25 and 30
percent, south winds 10 to 15 mph gusting over 20 mph, and drying
fuels, will increase the potential for the spread of fires from
around midday until around sunset.

Conditions may be even more conducive to fire growth and spread
Wednesday afternoon and early evening following a cold frontal
passage, with relative humidity falling to 25 to 30 percent and
west winds gusting to 25 to 30 mph. This will depend on whether
any wetting rain occurs with the frontal passage.

People should exercise caution handling any potential ignition
sources, including machinery, cigarettes, and matches. Any fires
that ignite in dry grasses and tree litter will have the
potential to spread quickly.
