...FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS ACROSS CENTRAL NEW YORK TODAY...

Dry conditions with gusty winds are expected across the region
today. Minimum relative humidity values will drop as low as 20
percent in some areas with south to southwest wind gusts of 20 to
30 mph during the afternoon. Although this Spring has been wet,
fine fuels such as dead grass and leaf litter will quickly dry out
in these conditions. If any fires were to start, the windy and
dry weather will increase the risk of wildfire spread, making it
difficult to contain.

The annual statewide burn ban is in effect until May 14th. No burn
permits are issued.
