Gusty Winds and Dry Air Spark Continued Fire Threat

Gusty northwest winds are expected Friday afternoon.

The National Weather Service is warning of elevated fire weather conditions developing Friday afternoon and continuing into Saturday.

Gusty northwest winds are expected Friday afternoon. The winds plus dry conditions will create a fire hazard, according to the weather.

Elevated fire conditions will continue through mid-day Saturday, but winds should diminish in the afternoon. There is a “low probability” that southwest winds on Sunday will cause a wind advisory.

The elevated fire weather conditions include much of Massachusetts.

No outdoor fires have been reported this spring in Hamilton and Wenham. A brush fire burned an area of woods near Salem Willows in Salem on Thursday.
