Gusty winds and low relative humidity will develop this afternoon
across the western Carolinas. With little to no rainfall across
the area yesterday, small fuels and brush will dry out quickly
this afternoon. All these conditions will lead to an increased
risk of wildfires into the evening hours.
Please refer to your local burn permitting authorities on whether
you can burn today. If you do burn, use extreme caution since
fires can quickly get out of hand under these conditions.
