...GUSTY WINDS AND DRY WEATHER INCREASE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS
TODAY...

The lack of precipitation this month has led to very dry
conditions in Maine`s forests this fall. Northwest winds will
increase today, with gusts of 30 to 35 mph expected this
afternoon. In addition, humidity will be lowering through the
afternoon with drier air moving across the region. These factors
will increase the potential for any fires that start to spread
quickly and become difficult to contain.

Maine Forest Service advises against any open burning today due
to these conditions. Numerous wildfires have started across the
state over the last few days and those who are working or
recreating outside should be fire aware.

Dry air will move into New England today behind this morning`s
cold front. By this afternoon, the relative humidity will fall to
between 25 and 35 percent. This dry air will combine with moderate
winds and a lack of recent rainfall to create conditions
favorable for rapid fire growth. Residents and visitors should
take extra precautions to prevent wildfires today.

...Breezy Winds and Dry Weather Increases Fire Weather Concerns
Again on Friday...

Fire officials advise against any open burning...including
campfires on Friday across northern New York and Vermont. The
lack of precipitation this month has led to fine fuels such as
leaves...grass...and small brush to become very dry. Northwest
winds 10 to 15 mph with localized gusts 20 to 25 mph are expected
on Friday with minimum relative humidity values in the 28 to 38
percent range. All of these factors will increase the potential
for any fires that do start to spread quickly and become more
difficult to contain.
