...NEAR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER DANGER EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON...
Warmer temperatures, low humidity, and breezy winds will generate
near critical fire danger this afternoon. The worst conditions
will take place between noon and 7 pm today.
People are urged to exercise extreme care with respect to outdoor
activities that could cause grass or crop fires. Use extra caution
with equipment that can cause sparks near dry grass or vegetation.
Do not toss cigarettes on the ground. Report new fires quickly to
the nearest fire department or law enforcement office.
