...Elevated Fire Weather Conditions This Afternoon...

A combination of dry and breezy conditions will create an
enhanced risk for the active spread of wildfires this afternoon.

West-northwest winds 10 to 20 mph, with gusts of 25 to 30 mph
will occur today. Humidity levels will fall to 20 to 25 percent
in the afternoon. This will result in elevated fire weather
conditions that would support rapid rates of spread for wildland
fires.

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.
