...HIGH FIRE DANGER CONTINUES INTO THIS WEEKEND AND MONDAY...

Mild temperatures Saturday and very warm conditions Sunday
combined with low humidity, gusty southwest winds and very dry
surface fuels will result in high fire danger across
Massachusetts, Rhode Island and northern Connecticut this weekend.
These conditions will likely persist into Monday. Each passing day
of dry weather increases the risk of reaching critical fire
weather conditions.
