Special Statement
Statement as of 9:04 AM EDT on March 31, 2015


... Increased fire danger today...

Strong southwesterly winds are expected today as deep low
pressure passes across the mid Atlantic this afternoon. The
southwesterly flow will cause afternoon temperatures to range from
the mid 60s to the lower 70s... and drive relative humidity values
to near 20 to 30 percent for several hours during the afternoon.
Wind speeds during the afternoon will range from 15 mph to 20
mph... with gusts as high as 30 mph for much of the area... possibly
reaching 40 mph across the higher ridges. The combination of dry
fuels... low relative humidity and gusty winds will heighten fire
danger today.

Please advise the appropriate officials and fire crews in the
field of this Fire Danger Statement.

... Increased fire danger today...

Dry air remained in place overnight... maintaining low relative
humidity which has resulted in little recovery of fine fuel
moisture. Strong southwesterly winds are expected today as deep
low pressure passes across the southern Great Lakes this
afternoon. The southwesterly flow will cause afternoon
temperatures to range from the mid 60s to the lower 70s... and
drive relative humidity values to near 20 percent for several
hours during the afternoon. Wind speeds during the afternoon will
range from 15 mph to 20 mph... with gusts as high as 30 mph for
much of the area... possibly reaching 40 mph across the higher
ridges. The combination of dry fuels... low relative humidity and
gusty winds will heighten fire danger today. Conditions will
improve during the evening as a cold front brings cooler air into
the area.

Please advise the appropriate officials and fire crews in the
field of this Fire Danger Statement.
