...INCREASED FIRE DANGER IS EXPECTED SATURDAY AFTERNOON...

Gusty winds are expected Saturday afternoon across much of the
area. Low relative humidities are forecast during this time as
well, with values below 30 percent. While some areas had rain in
the last 24 hours, windy conditions and low humidity on Friday
will have dried out fuels across the area. All of these factors
combined will result in an elevated risk for the spread of fires
Saturday afternoon.

Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged during this time. Please
refer to tour local burn permitting authority on whether you can
burn. If you do burn, use extreme caution and ensure fire
suppression is readily available.
