Statement as of 9:06 AM EDT on April 23, 2014

...Enhanced fire danger this afternoon and early evening... ...Patchy frost expected early Thursday morning...

Relative humidity will drop to around 25 percent for many locations late today. This very dry air will present an enhanced wildfire danger during the afternoon and early evening. Any open burning will be potentially dangerous and is discouraged. In addition... Kentucky state law prohibits burning within 150 feet of Woodland or brush land between the hours of 6 am and 6 PM during this time of year. Also...be careful not to discard cigarettes in areas where they could start a fire.

Patchy frost is expected late tonight into Thursday morning. It will be most prevalent in valleys. It would be a good idea to protect sensitive plants in the normally colder locations.
