…ELEVATED WILDFIRE RISK BEGINNING EARLY THIS AFTERNOON AND INTO
THE EVENING…

Dry fuels, low relative humidity, above normal temperatures, and
increasing winds this afternoon will work together to produce good
conditions for wildfires to ignite and spread.

Open burning at this time is considered extremely dangerous and
any burning should be postponed. Be careful of heat and sparks
when operating any equipment.
