|Projected Incident Activity|
It is anticipated that any areas of increased fire behavior will be primarily isolated surface fire on exposed southern aspects. Occasional isolated single tree torching on exposed aspects is anticipated as the low humidity and warm days continue. Heavy dead and down fuels will also continue to hold heat and burn.
