...Elevated Fire Weather Conditions Have Developed this
Afternoon...

The combination of lower relative humidity values and northwest
winds mixing higher than expected along with any remaining dry
fuels has resulted in elevated fire weather conditions for this
afternoon for portions of northern Iowa. Afternoon relative
humidity values have fallen to around 20 to 30 percent with winds
of 15 to 25 mph, gusting up to 30 mph at times.

Under these conditions, fires could start and spread easily.
Please exercise caution with any activities that involve outdoor
fires or create sparks, including campfires, grilling, and
operating large equipment. Cigarettes should be disposed of and
extinguished properly. Please heed any local burn bans.

Conditions will improve after 6 pm when the winds diminish and
temperatures begin to fall into the evening hours.
