  • ...GUSTY WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMITIES WILL INCREASE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS TODAY...
    RECENT DRY SPELL ACROSS THE CHAMPLAIN VALLEY AND SOUTHERN VERMONT
    HAVE ALLOW FINE FUELS BELOW 1500 FEET TO DRY. THIS COMBINED WITH
    GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS UP TO 40 MPH...AND MINIMUM RELATIVE
    HUMIDITY VALUES BETWEEN 25 AND 35 PERCENT...WILL INCREASE FIRE
    CONCERNS THIS AFTERNOON. THE RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL BE THE

    AREAS OF DRY FINE FUELS EXIST ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE NORTH
    COUNTRY. GIVEN THE EXPECTED WEATHER CONDITIONS...ANY FIRES THAT
    DO OCCUR COULD SPREAD QUICKLY...BURN INTENSELY...AND BE DIFFICULT
    TO CONTAIN.
