ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER THE REST OF THIS WEEKEND

Special Weather Statement issued September 19 at 3:46PM EDT by NWS Boston/Norton MA

The prolonged dry weather across southern New England has resulted in very low live and dead fuel moisture. With low relative humidity and gusty winds Sunday, any fires which escape initial containment and become established, could potentially become serious.

Consult your local fire warden if planning any outdoor burning this weekend.

.DISCUSSION...
Cool and dry weather continues today and Monday with minimum 
afternoon relative humidity values dropping to between 25 and 35 
percent in many locations. Winds will be a bit gusty from the NE 
along the coast.

OUTLOOK... Tuesday through Saturday...

Hurricane Teddy will pass nearly 400 miles east of our coastline on 
Tuesday as it heads north into the Canadian Maritimes. While we will 
remain dry it will bring a period of windy conditions along the 
coast, especially the Cape and Nantucket. Otherwise, the prolonged 
period of dry weather continues right through the upcoming week. 
Temperatures will moderate to above normal levels by Wednesday and 
that will continue for the rest of the week.
