...FIRE DANGER STATEMENT IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM EST THIS MORNING  
THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON...  
 
VERY DRY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE ACROSS NORTHEAST GEORGIA TODAY  
AS A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVERHEAD. WARM TEMPERATURES IN  
THE LOWER 70S THIS AFTERNOON WILL COMBINE WITH LINGERING DRY AIR,  
DESPITE THE SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS, TO LOWER THE RELATIVE HUMIDITY  
INTO THE 20 TO 25 PERCENT RANGE FOR SEVERAL HOURS.  
 
ALTHOUGH ANY WIND GUSTS WILL BE RELATIVELY TAME IN THE SOUTHWEST  
FLOW TODAY, VERY DRY FUELS AND BRUSH ACROSS THE REGION WILL  
INCREASE FIRE DANGER. PLEASE REFER TO YOUR LOCAL BURN PERMITTING  
AUTHORITIES ON WHETHER YOU CAN BURN TODAY. IF YOU DO BURN, USE  
CAUTION SINCE FIRES CAN QUICKLY GET OUT OF HAND UNDER THESE  
CONDITIONS.
