SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT
Issue Date: 345 AM EDT Thu Apr 19 2018
Expiration: 2300 GMT 19 2018
...Increased fire danger across central North Carolina today...
The combination of low relative humidity levels of 20 to 30
percent, and strong winds 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 30 to 35 mph,
will result in elevated fire danger conditions mainly this
afternoon across central NC. Recent rains have put a damper on
most fire weather concerns. However, the dry winds of Wednesday
into today may bring enough drying to offset the wet conditions.
Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged. Any grass or brush fires
that occur may quickly spread if left unattended. If you do burn,
exercise extreme caution and have fire suppression equipment
