Hello to all..
..Fire Weather to once again reach critical levels due to recent dry conditions and strong winds despite very cold temperatures..
..A Red Flag Warning is now in effect 10 AM to 7 PM today for the entire NWS Taunton Coverage Area except for Block Island Rhode Island. Local Fire Weather officials have advised that any fires that develop will have the potential to spread rapidly. Outdoor burning is not recommended and people should not throw cigarette butts out from moving vehicles as that could cause a brush fire that could spread out of control quickly..
..This is not a SKYWARN Activation type of event but this message is sent for public awareness to use caution and to postpone any outdoor burning. This will be the only coordination message for these conditions. Below is the NWS Taunton Red Flag Warning statement, Hazardous Weather Outlook and SPC Day-1 Fire Weather Outlook..
