Do not burn anything today. That's the word from National Weather Service. A 'Fire Risk Warning' will be in effect from noon today through 8 p.m. tonight for a majority of the Q98.5 listening area.

A Fire Risk Warning means weather conditions can cause a fire to get out of control in hurry. According to NWS,

THE COMBINATION OF STRONG WINDS, VERY LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY, EXCEPTIONALLY DRY FUELS, AND WARM TEMPERATURES WILL PROMOTE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS BEHAVIOR OF ANY FIRES. ANY OUTDOOR BURNING IS STRONGLY DISCOURAGED TODAY.
