West to southwest winds will gust between 20 to 30 mph this
afternoon. This, combined with low relative humidity values and
very dry vegetation, will result in elevated fire danger across
the area this afternoon.

Planned burning should be avoided and extra caution should be
given to any outdoor activity that may spark a fire. Any fire that
does form may have the potential to spread quickly.
