Statement as of 3:49 PM EST on February 24, 2017

Expires 7:00 AM EST on February 25, 2017


... Fire danger statement in effect from noon to 6 PM Saturday...

Winds will increase and become rather gusty during the afternoon
hours on Saturday, with sustained winds by the afternoon between
15 and 20 mph. Some gusts over 25 mph will also be possible during
the afternoon hours. Temperatures will climb into the upper 70s
and lower 80s. As these temperatures combine with drier air that
will be moving into the region, relative humidity values will
fall to between 25 and 30 percent for many areas across the
region. While fuels will be marginal, the combination of winds and
low relative humidity will increase fire danger.

you can burn on Saturday. If you do burn... you are advised to use
extreme caution since fires can quickly get out of hand under
these conditions
