...ELEVATED THREAT FOR THE SPREAD OF WILDFIRES THROUGH THE EARLY
EVENING...

West to northwest winds of 10 to 15 mph are expected with gusts
around 20 to 25 mph through this afternoon and relative humidity
values will fall to between 20 and 30 percent. Given recent dry
weather, fuels are very dry. Therefore, an elevated fire danger
will continue until about 8 PM before the winds gradually weaken
and humidity rises.

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