How many times have you looked at the sky and wondered, “Is the weather changing?” One way to tell is by observing the cloud formations approaching overhead.
The truth of the matter is, Meteorology is not an exact science. No matter how hard we try to get it exactly right, the odds of us actually doing so are virtually impossible.
Conditions favorable to fires can escalate quickly with windy conditions, low relative humidity, and little rainfall. Range burning is not advised when these advisories are out, and dangerous fire situations can occur.
