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

* winds... northwest 10 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph.

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

* Relative humidity... in the teens and 20s.

* Temperatures... mainly in the lower to mid 60s.

* 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 education... please visit your state
forestry or environmental protection website.
