...INCREASED FIRE WEATHER THREAT TODAY...
THE COMBINATION OF WIND GUSTS TO 35 MPH...LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITIES
AND DRY FINE FUELS WILL RESULT IN AN ELEVATED RISK FOR THE SPREAD
OF WILDFIRES TODAY. THE GREATEST RISK WILL OCCUR FROM LATE MORNING
THROUGH THE MID TO LATE AFTERNOON...WHEN RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL
BE AT THEIR LOWEST.
The above warning is for Oldwick, New Jersey today. These "Severe Weather Alerts" used to appear rarely on Yahoo weather, and were typically related to thunderstorms, flash floods, or foggy driving conditions and very rarely, a tornado watch. Now, anytime there is any wind at all lately, we get a fire watch...and if it's really gusty, we get a "Red Alert". This is what you would expect when trees and other plants are desiccated and dying from ozone pollution. The photograph is from the insane wildfire currently raging in Colorado. The headline to the article in the Daily Mail shrieks, "...wildfire scorches more than 4,000 acres of land and destroys dozens of homes as 900 flee in terror...".
This is going to get even worse, very quickly, all over the world.
