Minimum relative humidity values will range from 20 to 30 percent
accompanied by wind gusts between 20 and 30 mph from the south-

Residents are urged to exercise caution if handling any potential
ignition sources, such as machinery, cigarettes, or matches.
If dry grasses and tree litter begin to burn, the fire will have
the potential to spread rapidly.
