I've got some good news, and some bad news. The good news is. Friday
afternoon's high temperatures will be much warmer, rising into the upper 60s to mid 70s across the region!
The bad news is. southwesterly winds will be strong blowing around at 20-30 mph with higher gusts possible. Low relative
humidities, strong winds and lots of dry fuel across the region will lead to elevated fire weather conditions, so be careful out there!
