Special Statement

Statement as of 11:12 AM EDT on April 24, 2014

Expires 7:00 PM EDT on April 24, 2014


... Elevated fire weather conditions into this afternoon...

Blustery northwest winds will continue today with sustained flow
around 25 mph and gusts up to 40 mph.

The gusty winds combined with very dry air building across the
region and relative humidity values falling to 15 to 25 percent
will result in the development of elevated fire weather
conditions favorable for fire spread.

A red flag warning has been issued only for northern
Connecticut... but elsewhere light surface fuels will be slow to
recover due to recent rainfall which limit the fire weather risk.

We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops
today... updating as necessary.
