...INCREASED FIRE DANGER FROM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY
AFTERNOON...

Dry conditions will continue and lead to an increased risk of
dangerous fire growth Tuesday. Relative humidity values will fall
between 25 and 35 percent across much of the area. Winds are also
expected to increase from the southwest, with gusts of 15 to 20
mph possible during the afternoon. The dry air, combined with low
fuel moisture and gusty winds will allow fires to develop easily
and spread more quickly than usual.

The state of North Carolina has issued a state wide burn ban.
Please refer to your local burn permitting authorities for further
information.

...INCREASED FIRE DANGER AGAIN 10 AM EST TO 7 PM EST TUESDAY...

Very dry conditions continue across much of the state of North
Carolina. Gusty southwest winds will develop across the region by
late Tuesday morning and continue into the afternoon and early
evening. Relative humidity values will fall to as low as 30%
during this same time. These factors combined with the very dry
fuels from lack of any recent significant rainfall will result in
a continued enhanced fire danger and increased spread of
wildfires.

Please note, the North Carolina Forestry Service has implemented a
statewide burn ban across North Carolina. Outdoor burning is
prohibited.
