…Elevated Fire Weather Conditions from Noon until 8PM EDT

Strong winds, coupled with low humidity, will pose an increased
risk for brush fires this afternoon and evening. In spite of
yesterday's rainfall, the ground will dry quickly due to the windy
conditions and low humidity. Woodland fuels, such as leaf litter
and pine needle cast will be most receptive to fire spread.

Outdoor burning is not recommended today.
