Special Weather Statement
Issued: 9:15 AM May. 18, 2022 – National Weather Service
...Elevated Fire Weather Danger Predicted Today...

A very dry air mass and breezy conditions will combine with dead
and dry fuels such as grass, leaves, and twigs to create the
potential for uncontrolled fire spread across Maine today. This
afternoon, relative humidity values will decrease to low levels
between 15 to 20 percent. At the same time, northwest winds
around 15 mph with frequent gusts to 25 to 30 mph will continue to
dry fuels and increase fire spread potential. Wind gusts are
expected to diminish later this evening with increasing relative
humidity values.

Extra caution should be taken to prevent wildfires. Always consult
with fire officials before engaging in any open burning
activities and comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
Never leave an open fire unattended and always extinguish
campfires completely before leaving.
