...Elevated Fire Weather Potential today...

Dry conditions persist across eastern New York with the overall
recent lack of precipitation. Today, northwest winds will gust up
to 25 mph. These winds will combine with warmer than normal
temperatures in the 60s, and a dry airmass, to yield minimum
relative humidity values of 30 to 40 percent. This will lead to
an elevated fire weather potential during the day time today.
