...Elevated to locally Significant Fire Danger This afternoon...
The combination of brisk and gusty west to northwest winds and a
dry air mass moving into the region today will lead to elevated to
locally significant fire weather conditions.
Sustained west to northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph are expected
this afternoon, with gusts up to 30 mph. Meanwhile, afternoon
humidity values will fall into the 20 to 25 percent range for a
few hours this afternoon.
These conditions will favor the quick growth and spread of fires.
