Increased Fire Danger Again This Afternoon

Dry weather will persist today with breezy conditions this afternoon. These breezy dry conditions will result in the potential for hard to contain brush fires.

With temperatures forecast in the 70s to near 80, the humidity will drop to between 25 and 35 percent. Southwest winds of 8 to 14 mph, and gusts of 15 to 25 mph, will be common this afternoon.

Under these conditions, extra caution is advised when handling any potential fire ignition source. Be sure to properly discard all smoking materials. Any dry grass or tree litter that ignites will have the potential to spread quickly.
