Fire Weather Warning

Statement as of 10:47 AM EDT on April 18, 2015

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on April 18, 2015


... A red flag warning remains in effect until 8 PM EDT this
evening for much of central and northern Pennsylvania...

* affected area... the northern and central mountains... and the
Susquehanna River valley... mainly north of Harrisburg.

* Winds... west to northwest increasing to 10 to 15 mph with gusts
up to 25 mph.

* Timing... a dry cold front over Lake Erie late this morning will
push southeast across the district this afternoon and increase
the wind out of the west-northwest. The full sun... gusty wind
and low relative humidity will dry out the Leaf litter and other
fine fuels efficiently. After sunset... the wind will diminish
and humidity will rise... calming the threat for fire spread.

* Relative humidity... as low as 23 percent.

* Temperatures... around 70.

* Impacts... the likelihood exists for rapid growth and spread of
wild fires that develop... and for prescribed Burns to grow out
of control.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now... or will shortly. A combination of
strong gusty winds... low relative humidity... and warm
temperatures will create explosive fire growth potential.
