Elevated fire weather danger Wednesday, NWS says


The National Weather Service (NWS) office in Des Moines said an elevated fire weather danger has developed as a result of a combination of conditions, including warming temperatures into the upper 50s to middle 60s, southerly winds averaging 20 to 30 mph, with gusts to around 40 mph, and relative humidities dropping into the 30% to 35% range.

Ignition of any fields or brush will be at risk of spreading rapidly, the NWS said. Planned burns are discouraged, and extra caution should be used during outdoor activities that could cause ignition.
