...ENHANCED RISK OF FIRE SPREAD TODAY...

THE COMBINATION OF STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS AND A DRYING AIR MASS
WILL RESULT IN CONDITIONS FAVORABLE FOR THE RAPID SPREAD OF BRUSH
FIRES...ESPECIALLY THIS AFTERNOON.

RELATIVE HUMIDITY WILL BE LOWEST THIS AFTERNOON...DROPPING TO 35
TO 40 PERCENT AND WINDS WILL GUST UP TO 40 MPH. THESE CONDITIONS
WOULD LIKELY AID FIRE SPREAD IF IGNITION OCCURS.

IF YOU SPOT A FIRE OR SMOKE PLUME...PLEASE REPORT IT TO THE
AUTHORITIES IMMEDIATELY.
