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.
