A wildfire warning is in effect... are they burning today? Was really windy here yesterday too.
1002 AM EST Wed Mar 8 2023
...ELEVATED RISK OF WILDFIRE SPREAD THIS AFTERNOON...
A combination of low relative humidity, a strong northwest wind,
and relatively dry fine fuels will lead to an elevated risk for
fire spread this afternoon across Delaware, Maryland, much of New
Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. Minimum relative humidity values
will be around 30 percent. The northwest wind will range from 15
to 20 MPH with gusts of 25 to 30 MPH.
Residents are urged to exercise caution if handling any potential
ignition source, including machinery, cigarettes, and matches. Be
sure to properly discard all smoking materials. Any dry grasses,
dead leaves, and other tree litter that ignite will have the potential to spread fire quickly.
