“A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity and warm temperatures will create explosive fire growth potential,” according to an

During that period, sustained northeast winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour, with gusts up to 45 mph, were expected.

Humidity today was expected to fall to around 10 to 15 percent.
