Special Weather Statement Issued by NWS NorthernIndiana (Northern Indiana and Northeastern Ohio)
Indiana Target Area: Elkhart, Fulton, Kosciusko, La Porte, Marshall, Pulaski, St. Joseph, and Starke Counties.
Increased Fire Danger Today.
Relative humidity values dropping to around 25 to 30 percent combined with northwest wind gusts up to around 25 to 30 mph, will aid in the rapid drying of grasses, brush and remnants of crops especially this afternoon. Expect increased fire danger through this evening. As a result, consider postponing outdoor burning. Have a water source readily available for any fires that do get started and ensure any fires are fully extinguished before leaving the area.
