Description: ...OUTDOOR BURNING WILL BE VERY DANGEROUS TODAY... IT HAS BEEN OVER 72 HOURS SINCE MOST LOCATIONS HAVE SEEN ANY RAINFALL. THIS HAS RESULTED IN VERY DRY AND COMBUSTIBLE LEAF LITTER ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY. THE FORECAST FOR TODAY IS CALLING FOR LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITIES AND WINDS OF 5 TO 10 MPH WITH GUSTS AS HIGH AS 20 MPH EXPECTED IN THE AFTERNOON. THE COMBINATION OF THE DRY GROUND...LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITIES...AND POTENTIAL WIND GUSTS CAN CAUSE A FIRE TO GO OUT OF CONTROL VERY EASILY. ANYONE HIKING OR CAMPING SHOULD TAKE GREAT CARE WITH FIRES OR SMOKING MATERIALS. A REMINDER THAT KENTUCKY LAW DOES NOT PERMIT ANY OUTDOOR BURNING WITHIN 150 FEET OF ANY WOODLAND OR BRUSHLAND BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 6AM TO 6 PM.
