    Message Summary: ...increasing threat for dangerous fire conditions tomorrow into the weekend...
    The prolonged period of warmth and dryness the area has seen of late has led to parched vegetation and an increasing fire weather threat. The cold front passing through is bringing generally less than an inch of rainfall...which will not aid in increasing soil moisture sufficiently. According to area forestry commissions and the u.s. Forest service... These conditions have made outdoor burning increasingly hazardous. The combination of dry vegetation...breezy winds...and daytime relative humidity values of 25 to 30 percent will result in a limited threat for dangerous fire weather conditions for the weekend. The strongest winds are expected on friday behind a cold front when sustained north winds of 10 to 20 mph will be possible. Conditions are such that a spark from equipment...the heat from a catalytic converter...or any heat source could start a grass or brush fire. When barbecuing...take the utmost care. Do not dump ashes unless you are certain they are completely out. Live coals can burn for as long as one or two days after being used. Since june 1...the mississippi forestry commission has responded to and suppressed 259 wildfires that burned 2363 acres in mississippi. Remember wildfires place area forestry commissions...fire departments...and other fire control agencies in life threatening situations and can endanger communities. Please use caution and help prevent forest and grass fires.
