Statement as of 9:07 AM MDT on March 10, 2014
... Near critical fire weather conditions anticipated this
High temperatures today will once again surge into the low to mid
70s across much of the sandhills region and points south. These
temperatures when combined with a dry antecedent airmass and gusts
to 20 mph will create conditions favorable for large fire spread.
All persons working outdoors with combustible materials need to
exercise caution as any range fire start will have the potential
to burn out of control this afternoon.
