Special Statement


... Increased fire danger across central North Carolina today...

Gusty winds from the northwest combined with a very dry air mass
will create conditions favorable for increased fire activity
today. Northwest winds around 10 to 15 mph will gust to around 25
mph... and minimum relative humidity of around 25 percent is
expected. The drying effects of the wind will make dead grasses
and leaves potentially combustible from any ignition source...
such as a spark or discarded smoking material.

Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged. Any unattended fire
should be reported immediately to the local Fire Department.
