Special Weather Statement
Issued: 12:56 PM Apr. 23, 2024 – National Weather Service
...ELEVATED FIRE DANGER THIS AFTERNOON INTO EARLY THIS EVENING...

Elevated fire conditions are expected due to dry conditions and
gusty winds. Relative humidity values around 15 to 30 percent are
expected along with sustained southerly winds of 10 to 15 mph and
gusts 20 to 25 mph. This will result in the rapid drying of fine
fuels.

Residents and visitors are urged to exercise caution if handling
open flames or equipment that creates sparks. Also, dispose of
cigarette butts, matches, and other flammable items in appropriate
containers. Keep vehicles off of dry grass and obey local burn bans.
Most dry grasses, dead leaves, and other tree litter could easily
ignite and spread fire quickly.

For more information about wildfire danger, burn restrictions,
and wildfire prevention and education, please visit your state's
forestry or environmental protection website.
