...Enhanced Threat for Fire Spread Today...
Relative humidity values are forecast to drop into the low to mid 30s across the area today. Winds will be gusting to near 30 mph as well. Fuels will be able to dry some through today. Therefore there will be an enhanced threat for fire spread today.
For more information about wildfire danger, burn restriction, and wildfire prevention and education, please visit your state forestry or environmental protection website.


Areas affected:Anne Arundel; Calvert; Carroll; Frederick; Northern Baltimore; Northwest Harford; Southeast Harford; Southern Baltimore; St. Marys

...ENHANCED THREAT FOR THE SPREAD OF WILDFIRES TODAY...
Minimum relative humidity values will fall to between 30 and 35 percent this afternoon across portions of northeastern and southern Maryland. Sustained southwest winds between 20 and 25 mph with frequent gusts of 30 to 35 mph are also expected during this time. The combination of gusty winds...low relative humidity and low fuel moisture will enhance the threat for the spread of wildfires this afternoon and into this evening. Residents are urged to exercise caution handling any potential ignition source...including machinery... cigarettes...and matches. Be sure to properly discard all smoking materials. Any dry grasses and tree litter that ignite will have the potential to spread quickly. Please check with local officials regarding any open burning laws.

Areas affected:Dorchester; Inland Worcester; Somerset; Wicomico

...Increased Fire Danger This Afternoon...
The combination of southwest winds gusting to 25 to 30 mph and low humidity levels between 30 to 35 percent will lead to increased fire danger this afternoon and early evening. Residents are urged to exercise caution handling any potential
ignition source...including machinery...cigarettes...and matches. Be sure to properly discard all smoking materials. Any dry
grasses and tree litter that ignite will have the potential to spread quickly. Virginia residents are reminded that open burning is prohibited before 4 pm each day through April 30th.
