THE FIRE DANGERS THAT FORESTER ROB CLARKE HAS ALERTED US TO ALL WEEKEND STILL STAND!
PLEASE USE CAUTION!
A RED FLAG warning is in effect from noon today until 8:00 PM this evening for wind and low relative humidity for the Lower Eastern Shore. A red flag warning means conditions leading to an increased risk of fire.
The strongest winds and lowest relative humidity values are generally expected between 12 noon and 6 PM. Winds will be out of the west, 15-25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph. Relative humidity will fall to 20-25% this afternoon.
Fire danger should be elevated due to the gusty winds and very dry conditions. Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly.
Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged.
Be alert and be careful!
Only you can prevent forest fires!
