...High Fire Danger Likely On Sunday...

A combination of strong sustained winds, wind gusts approaching 40
mph, lowering relative humidity values, and quickly drying grass
and brush will lead to an elevated wild fire risk on Sunday.

Planned burning should be avoided, extra caution should be used in
agricultural fields, and do not carelessly discard cigarettes. Any
fire that does form may have the potential to spread quickly given
strong winds.
