…ENHANCED WILDFIRE THREAT THIS AFTERNOON…

WEST-NORTHWEST WINDS WILL BE SUSTAINED AROUND 10 TO 15 MPH WITH
FREQUENT GUSTS OVER 20 MPH. FUEL MOISTURE REMAINS VERY LOW DUE TO
THE RECENT DRY SPELL AND THE RELATIVE HUMIDITY IS EXPECTED TO DROP
TO NEAR 30 PERCENT THIS AFTERNOON. THE COMBINATION OF LOW FUEL
MOISTURE…GUSTY WINDS…AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY WILL POSE AN
ENHANCED THREAT FOR THE SPREAD OF WILDFIRES THIS AFTERNOON.

OPEN BURNING IS STRONGLY DISCOURAGED.
