…INCREASED FIRE DANGER FROM NOON EDT TODAY THROUGH THIS
EVENING…

A dry airmass will linger across the western Carolinas and
northeast Georgia today. With low surface dewpoints persisting
into the afternoon, relative humidity values will drop to less
than 25 percent over most areas for several hours. Small fuels
will remain quite dry and winds will become gusty by late morning.
Thus, with the expected low relative humidity values, the risk of
fire danger will be enhanced through the afternoon.

Please refer to your local burn permitting authorities on whether
you can burn today. If you do burn, use extreme caution since
fires can quickly get out of hand under these conditions.
