Increased Risk of Hazardous Burning Conditions Again Today

By this afternoon northwest winds between 15 and 20 mph, with gusts up to 30 mph, are expected.  Meanwhile, a dry air mass will be in place with relative humidity values dropping to 20-25%.  The combination of these ingredients will create hazardous burning conditions.  Most small fuels have greened up considerably with the mild spring, however wooded or sheltered areas will have a greater chance of yielding dry fuels that would enhance dangerous fire growth.  Use caution if burning this afternoon and evening.
