Gusty winds and low relative humidity will develop this afternoon
across the western Carolinas and northeast Georgia. With little
to no rainfall across the area the past several days, small fuels
and brush will remain very dry and easily combustible. All of
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.
