...Very High Fire Danger Wednesday...
Winds will increase out of the south southwest to around 20 to 30
mph on Wednesday. Gusts will push 40 mph at times, and may
occasionally exceed 40 mph. Relative humidity values will likely
be around 30 percent, but may for a period of time this afternoon
drop to around 25 percent. The combination of the strong, gusty
winds and the very dry surface layer of air will bring for very
high fire danger across the area. All outdoor burning should be
avoided if possible until a later date, but any burning that must
occur should be done with extreme caution, as conditions will
favor rapid spread of fire. Thursday will bring friendlier
conditions for outdoor burning, as winds will be a bit weaker, and
low level moisture will be a bit higher.
