Northwest Middlesex County Severe Watches & Warnings NOAA Weather Radio

Special Statement
Statement as of 3:50 AM EDT on April 24, 2014

...Fire weather conditions for today...

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 fire weather conditions favorable for fire spread.

A red flag warning has been issued 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.
