...Elevated Fire Weather Danger Continues Today...
A very dry air mass will combine with dead and dry fuels such as
grass, leaves and twigs to create the potential for uncontrolled
fire spread across western Maine and New Hampshire. This
afternoon, relative humidity values will decrease to low levels
between 20 and 30 percent. Winds will be lighter than Saturday,
generally around 10 mph, with gusts approaching 20 mph near the
coast. Expect continued drying of fuels and increased fire spread
potential. Wind will diminish this evening with increasing
relative humidity values.
Extra caution should be taken to prevent wildfires. Always consult
with local 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.
