Dry Weather, Gusty Winds Raise Fire Threat in Ala
Forecasters say the dry, windy weather is increasing the risk of wildfires in southeast Alabama.
The National Weather Service has issued a fire weather watch for the area south and east of a line extending from Autaugaville to Alexander City.
Winds blowing 15 mph will gust up to 30 mph, and the relative humidity is expected to drop as low as 27 percent.
Forecasters say the combination will make it easier for fires to start and spread, so they're recommending against any outdoor burning.
