...ENHANCED RISK OF WILDFIRE SPREAD TODAY...


The combination of low humidity values, breezy conditions, and
dry fine fuels will lead to an enhanced threat for fire spread
through early this evening. Relative humidity values are forecast
to drop to around 25-30% this afternoon with northwesterly winds
increasing to around 10-15 mph and gusts of 20-25 mph expected.

Residents are urged to exercise caution handling any potential
ignition source, including machinery, cigarettes, and matches. Be
sure to properly discard all smoking materials. Any dry grasses
and tree litter that ignite will have the potential to spread

fire quickly.
