... Enhanced fire weather conditions today into early this
evening...

Southwest flow today into early this evening will be generally 10
to 20 mph and this will help lower dewpoints with vertical mixing.
As a result... minimum relative humidities will be near 25 to 30
percent for much of the region... so these conditions will enhance
the spread and growth of any fires that develop.

... National hurricane preparedness week is from may 24 to may 30...

Please join your National Weather Service forecast office in Upton
New York in observing National hurricane preparedness week.

Hurricanes are powerful storms than can create severe flooding...
dangerous storm surge... high winds... and tornadoes. The effects
of these storms can be devastating to entire communities and have
long lasting impacts.

The Atlantic hurricane season begins June 1. The peak threat for
the East Coast of the United States is from the middle of August
through the middle of October. However... hurricanes can occur
anytime during the hurricane season.

Each year an average of 12 tropical storms develop over the Atlantic
Ocean... Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. Usually 6 of these storms
become hurricanes... with 3 being major.

NOAA releases seasonal outlooks before each hurricane season begins.

Remember... seasonal outlooks cannot forecast where a storm will make
landfall and it only takes one storm to hit your community to make
it a bad year.

Be prepared this hurricane season... and visit hurricanes.Gov and
ready.Gov/hurricanes.
