HIDE Special Weather Statement issued November 29 at 5:55AM EST by NWS Blacksburg
...INCREASED FIRE DANGER TODAY...
There is an increased threat of wildfires growing out of control
today due to a combination of low humidity, gusty northwest
winds, and an abundance of dry leaves and brush. Humidity
minimums of 25 to 30 percent, and northwest winds gusting between
15 and 25 mph, will make it possible for fire to spread quickly.
Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged during this time. Please
refer to your local burn permitting authority on whether you can
burn. If you do burn, use extreme caution and ensure fire
suppression equipment is readily available.
