...INCREASED FIRE DANGER IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM EST THIS EVENING...

A very dry air mass will remain in place over the region today.
Critical relative humidity values in the teens and lower 20s will
develop or persist this afternoon through early this evening.

The low relative humidity, lack of recent rainfall, and dry brush
and fuels, are enhancing the potential for wildfires to develop
and spread quickly in western North Carolina. Most locations
remain under a burn ban due to the drought conditions.

There are also still several wildfires in parts of the NC mountains.

Please stay safe out there.
