Elevated Fire Danger

A prolonged dry stretch is anticipated from today through early next week. Gradually warming temperatures coupled with lower dewpoints will result in relative humidity values dropping to between 20 and 30 percent during the afternoons. Winds will generally, remain on the lighter side under high pressure, but an extended stretch of critical fire weather conditions looks likely away from the seacoast.
