... Red flag warning in effect from 11 am to 8 PM EDT Thursday for
northeast Pennsylvania and portions of central New York...

The National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued a red flag
warning for critical fire weather conditions... which is in effect
from 11 am to 8 PM EDT Thursday. The Fire Weather Watch is no
longer in effect.

* Affected area... the Poconos in northeast Pennsylvania... and the
western Catskills and Susquehanna region in New York.

* Winds... northwest 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph.

* Timing... late Thursday morning into the afternoon.

* Relative humidity... as low as 20 percent.

* Temperatures... in the 50s.

* Impacts... any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly.
Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now... or will shortly. A combination of
strong winds... low relative humidity... and warm temperatures will
create explosive fire growth potential.
