... Red flag warning in effect from 10 am to 8 PM EDT Thursday for
low relative humidty and strong wind for eastern
Pennsylvania... most of New Jersey... Delaware and the Eastern Shore
of Maryland...

* winds... northwest 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph.

* Timing... strongest winds will be late morning into the early
afternoon Thursday, with the lowest humidities from late morning
into the early evening.

* Relative humidity... as low as the upper teens to low 20s.

* Temperatures... ranging form the upper 5os and low 60s up north,
to the mid to upper 60s elsewhere.

* Impacts... the combination of windy conditions and low relative
humidity values will lead to a more rapid spread rate of any
fires that may develop. Residents are encouraged to exercise
fire prevention with any outdoor activities and properly
dispose of smoking materials.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now... or will shortly due to a combination
of strong winds... low relative humidity... and dry fuels. Any
fires that develop may quickly get out of control and become
difficult to contain.

For more information about wildfire danger... burn restrictions...
and wildfire prevention and educatioin... please visit your state
forestry or environmental protection website.
