Critical fire weather conditions are expected Friday afternoon. Above normal air temperatures, very gusty west winds, extremely low relative humidity values, and dry vegetation will be the recipe for concern.
Any fires that initiate have the potential to grow rapidly. Therefore, any outdoor burning is strongly discouraged.
