A combination of dry and windy conditions this afternoon will
create an elevated risk of wildfire spread across all of Central
Pennsylvania. Minimum relative humidity values will range from 15
to 25 percent accompanied by wind gusts between 20 and 30 mph.

Residents are urged to exercise caution if handling any potential
ignition sources, such as machinery, cigarettes, or matches.
If dry grasses and tree litter begin to burn, the fire will have
the potential to spread rapidly.
