...ENHANCED RISK OF WILDFIRE SPREAD THIS AFTERNOON...

A combination of dry and windy conditions will create an enhanced
risk for the spread of wildfires across New Jersey and Delaware
this afternoon. Minimum relative humidity values are forecast to
be around 25 to 30 percent this afternoon, with wind gusts in
excess of 30 mph. Most areas received less than 0.25 inch of rain
yesterday, and many areas received less than 0.10 inch, keeping
potential fuel sources relatively dry.

Residents are urged to exercise caution if handling any potential
ignition sources, such as machinery, cigarettes or matches. If
dry grasses and tree litter begin to burn, the fire will have the
potential to spread quickly.

For more information about wildfire danger, burn restrictions,
and wildfire prevention and education, please visit your state
forestry or environmental protection website.
