...ELEVATED RISK OF WILDFIRE SPREAD TODAY INTO EARLY THIS EVENING... There is an elevated risk of wildfire spread today into early this evening across Northeast New Jersey. This is due to relative humidity levels dropping to near 25 to 30 percent, and frequent wind gusts of 30 to 35 mph. While much of the area received near a quarter inch or less of rainfall on Wednesday, the gusty winds and low relative humidity will allow fine fuels to dry out quickly. Similar conditions are likely on Friday with wind gusts a bit lower.
