Fire Weather Watch Posted

March 14th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

We have a Fire Weather Watch in effect through this evening, meaning conditions are such that if a brush or woods fire starts, it will spread very quickly.

We are prior to green up in the woods, so the low humidity…as low as 23 percent according to the National Weather Service…and windy conditions expected today…up to 35 miles an hour…could result in a major fire problem.

The Fire Weather Watch is in effect for all of Allegany, Mineral, Hampshire, Hardy, Grant and Bedford Counties. The watch will continue until 10 PM this evening, so it's advisable not to do any outdoor burning of any type.
