Virginia and interior sections of southeast and eastern Virginia
through early evening...
The combination of low relative humidity levels of 25 to 35
percent, and strong, breezy northwest winds gusting to 25 to 35
mph, will result in elevated fire danger conditions through early
evening across central, south central, and interior sections of

that ignite will have the potential to spread quickly.
