…INCREASED FIRE DANGER THROUGH THIS
Relative humidity values will fall below 20 percent across most of
Western North Carolina today as a very dry air mass moves into the
area. Although wind speeds will diminish through the day, gusty
northwest winds will continue into the afternoon. The combination
of the winds, low relative humidity values, and low fuel moisture
values will lead to increased fire danger today.
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.
