Special Statement
Statement as of 4:02 AM EDT on May 23, 2015

... Special Weather Statement...

Per coordination with the Vermont department of forests, Parks and
recreation, fine dead fuels such as leaves and grass remain very dry
across most of the region, and with lower than average
precipitation over the past few weeks conditions remain favorable
for these fuels to burn quickly should any fires start. Low
afternoon relative humidity (15 to 25%) along with gusty west to
northwesterly winds from 20 to 30 mph will exacerbate these
conditions today. Thus any fires that do start today will have the
potential to spread quickly... burn intensely and become difficult
to contain. Persons planning outdoor burning of brush or other
material today should do so with caution.
