... Enhanced fire danger on Sunday...

A dry cold front will pass southeast through the region Saturday night...
followed by building high pressure on Sunday. The pressure gradient
behind the front between low pressure well to the north and the
high to the west will result in increasing northwest winds Sunday
morning after daybreak. These winds are expected to remain strong
and gusty... especially along and just east of the Blue Ridge into
late Sunday afternoon. This in combination with the mixing of much
drier air to the surface and daytime heating will cause smaller
fuels... such as Leaf litter and grasses to dry further. This will
likely lead to enhanced fire danger especially by Sunday afternoon
when northwest winds gusting as high as 35 mph could result in
rapid fire spread.

Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged especially near the Blue
Ridge Sunday where fires are more apt to get out of control.
Remember to use caution when discarding any smoking materials on
