...ELEVATED RISK OF WILDFIRE SPREAD TODAY...
A combination of dry and breezy conditions will create an
elevated risk of wildfire spread across central Pennsylvania
Minimum relative humidity values will range from 20 to 30 percent.
Sustained winds from the northwest will increase to around 10 to
15 mph into the afternoon with gusts up to 20 mph possible.
Abnormally dry to moderate drought conditions are also a
contributing factor for the elevated risk of wildfire spread.
Residents are urged to exercise caution if handling any potential
ignition sources, such as machinery, cigarettes, or matches.
If dry grasses and tree litter begin to burn, the fire will have
the potential to spread rapidly.
