Florida Fire Outlook — Brushfire Safety


AN EXTREMELY VOLATILE FIRE WEATHER SITUATION IS LIKELY LATER TODAY
ACROSS THE PANHANDLE, CENTRAL AND EASTERN FL PENINSULA.

A MUCH DRIER AIR MASS IS CURRENTLY MOVING INTO THE SERN U.S. WITH HIGH PRESSURE. WINDS WILL INCREASE QUICKLY AFTER SUNRISE TO 15-20 MPH BY MIDDAY…WITH HIGHER GUSTS. AS TEMPERATURES WARM INTO THE MID TO UPPER 80S…RH LEVELS WILL PLUMMET TO NEAR 20 PERCENT…WITH LOCALIZED AREAS DIPPING INTO THE 15-20 PERCENT RANGE. THE COMBINATION OF GUSTY WINDS AND VERY LOW HUMIDITY WILL RESULT IN THE POTENTIAL FOR FAST MOVING AND INTENSE WILDFIRES. IN ADDITION…THE WARM AND DRY AIR MASS WILL EXTEND THROUGH A DEEP LAYER…RESULTING IN A HIGH HAINES INDEX. THERFORE…ANY ONGOING FIRES WILL EXPERIENCE FAVORABLE CONDITIONS DURING THE AFTERNOON FIRE UPSCALE GROWTH.

Got an opinion? Keep it clean. Don't ask open-ended questions, like "Does the Pope belong to a coven?" Make it pertinent.
