...ENHANCED THREAT FOR THE SPREAD OF WILDFIRES TODAY...

Low afternoon relative humidity levels, windy conditions, and dry
fine fuels will create an elevated risk for the spread of
wildfires. Winds are expected to be sustained at 20 to 30 mph
with gusts of 40 to 50 mph. The relative humidity is expected to
drop to between 15 and 25 percent. This combined with dry fine
fuels will create conditions ripe for rapid wildfire spread.

Residents are urged to exercise caution handling any potential
ignition source...including machinery... cigarettes...and matches.
Be sure to properly discard all smoking materials. Any dry
grasses and tree litter that ignite will have the potential to
spread quickly.

Virginia residents are reminded that open burning is prohibited
before 4 pm each day through April 30th.
