Dry Conditions and Fire weather is here now in Middle Tennessee.

Fire weather is when weather conditions are suitable for wildfires to start quickly and spread rapidly. This means there are warm temperatures, low relative humidity, and gusty winds.

The drought conditions across Southern Tennessee haven’t helped and fire danger will continue until rain chances pick up tomorrow (Friday) and next Monday.

The best way to prevent fires from happening is to proceed with daily tasks using extreme care. Don’t drag chains behind farming equipment and don’t throw cigarette butts out of the car window because these small sparks could cause a big reaction.

And remember, it also the time of the year where you need to secure a burn permit before burning outdoors. Get your permit @
