Fire Danger Up

The fire danger for our region is almost as high as the wind speeds will be today.

The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory from 8 this morning until 7 tonight from a line stretching from St. Joseph to Trenton and counties south of there. Forecasters are expecting winds around 30 miles per hour. With gusts up to 45 miles per hour. Counties in the northwest corner of the state are also being warned of the very high fire danger. The Weather Service says humidity levels dropping to around 30% combining with those wind speeds could make for dangerous fire conditions across our listening area. They say the winds are expected to die down and humidity levels rise around sundown tonight.
