Special Statement
Statement as of 7:04 AM CDT en Noviembre 01, 2014

...High fire danger conditions expected for portions of south Mississippi today...

In partnership with local forestry commissions and the U.S. Forest service... this Special Weather Statement is being issued.

Recent dry conditions have made outdoor burning increasingly hazardous. 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. The combination of dry fine fuels... such as grass... and low relative humidity have resulted in continued fire danger across the region. Several significant fires were reported yesterday and the potential remains today.

Minimum relative humidity values will be near 25 percent Saturday afternoon...and combined with 15 to 20 mph winds at the surface in the morning and remaining at the 20 foot level into the early afternoon ...will create high fire danger given the dry conditions.

Fires place residents... 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.
