Elevated Fire Danger This Afternoon

The combination of dry air, steady northeast winds, and dry small fuels is leading to increased wildfire danger this afternoon. These conditions are expected to persist into the early evening hours before winds taper off and relative humidity values begin to recover. Use extreme caution if burning outdoors this afternoon and early this evening, or perhaps consider another time to burn if possible.
