Special Statement

Statement as of 8:55 PM EDT on April 23, 2014

Expires 9:00 AM EDT on April 24, 2014


Patchy frost is expected late tonight into Thursday morning. It will
be most prevalent in valleys. It would be a good idea to protect
sensitive plants in the normally colder locations.

The combination of dry air and winds of 5 to 10 mph will result in
an enhanced wildfire danger during the afternoon and early evening
on Thursday. Any open burning will be potentially dangerous and is
discouraged. In addition... Kentucky state law prohibits burning
within 150 feet of Woodland or brush land between the hours of 6 am
and 6 PM during this time of year. Due to the very dry conditions... be
careful not to discard cigarettes in areas where they could start a
fire.
