..LOW FIRE DANGER
 
 
THE GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER INDEX WILL REACH THE LOW CATEGORY  
THIS AFTERNOON. FAVORABLE WEATHER CONDITIONS OR A HIGH MOISTURE  
CONTENT OF GRASSES AND OTHER DRY ORGANIC MATERIAL ON THE  
GROUND INDICATE THAT THE PROBABILITY OF A FIRE OCCURRENCE IS LOW.  
OUTDOOR BURNING UNDER THESE CONDITIONS CAN USUALLY BE PERFORMED  
WITH REASONABLE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS.  
 
OUTLOOK FOR FRIDAY AFTERNOON...THE GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER INDEX  
WILL REACH THE LOW CATEGORY.  
 
THE GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER PRODUCT REFLECTS FIRE DANGER FOR NATIVE  
GRASSES. IT IS NOT INTENDED FOR CURED AGRICULTURAL CROPS, NOR  
WILL IT REFLECT CONDITIONS IN ROAD DITCHES WHICH HAVE BEEN MOWED.
