Special Weather Statement issued April 23 at 8:56AM EDT by NWS Baltimore MD/Washington DC

Post by Weatherbot »

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.
