...ELEVATED RISK FOR WILDFIRES THIS AFTERNOON...

THE COMBINATION OF BRISK...GUSTY WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE
HUMIDITIES WILL RESULT IN AN ELEVATED RISK FOR WILDFIRES THIS
AFTERNOON. LOOK FOR WEST TO NORTHWEST WINDS OF 15 TO 25 MPH WITH
GUST OF 30 TO 35 MPH FOR THE LATE MORNING AND AFTERNOON HOURS.
MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES ARE EXPECTED TO FALL INTO THE 18
TO 28 PERCENT RANGE THIS AFTERNOON. WILDFIRES COULD START EASILY
AND SPREAD QUICKLY IN DRY GRASSES THIS AFTERNOON. AVOID ALL
OUTDOOR BURNING TODAY.

CONDITIONS WILL IMPROVE AFTER 6 PM AS WINDS DIMINISH AND
HUMIDITIES INCREASE.
