   THE COMBINATION OF INCREASED WIND/LOW RH MAY RAISE FIRE CONCERNS

   MUCH OF SRN/CNTRL GA AND NRN FL. HIGH TEMPS WILL RANGE FROM THE

   25-30 PERCENT. GUSTY N WINDS ON THE ORDER OF 15-20 MPH WILL INCREASE
   THE POTENTIAL FOR WIND DRIVEN FIRES...BUT CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS
   ARE NOT EXPECTED.
