Monday's Fire Danger

Monday's weather conditions could lead to an increased fire danger across central North Carolina. The combination of dry conditions and windy weather could allow any fire to spread rapidly.

Relatively humidity levels are forecast to drop to 15% to 20% in the afternoon. At the same time, the wind will pick up. A west wind at 15 to 20mph with higher gusts is forecast.

The National Weather Service asks everyone to make sure any fires from this weekend are completely out so that there will be no flare ups. All outdoor burning is strongly discouraged Monday.
