...Gusty winds will lead to elevated fire risk this afternoon
across much of the Hudson Valley...helderbergs...central Taconics
and the Berkshires.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms generally produced an average
basin rainfall of less than a quarter inch in most of these areas
on Tuesday.

Today will be rather windy with relative humidities dropping to
around 30 percent during the afternoon. Wind gusts will reach 30
mph...possibly 35 mph over the higher terrain.

The combination of still fairly dry fuels...low humidity and the
gusty wind will make for an elevated fire spread potential
this afternoon.

...Air quality alert in effect from 11 am this morning to 11 PM EDT
this evening...

The New York state department of environmental conservation has
issued an air quality health advisory for the following counties...

Richmond...Kings...Queens...New York...Bronx...Westchester...
Rockland...Nassau...Suffolk...Orange...Putnam.

In effect from 11 am this morning to 11 PM EDT this evening.

Air quality levels in outdoor air are predicted to be greater than
an air quality index value of 100 for the pollutant of ground level
ozone. The air quality index...or aqi...was created as an easy way
to correlate levels of different pollutants to one scale. The higher
the aqi value, the greater the health concern.

When pollution levels are elevated...the New York state department
of health recommends that individuals consider limiting strenuous
outdoor physical activity to reduce the risk of adverse health
effects. People who may be especially sensitive to the effects of
elevated levels of pollutants include the very Young, and those with
pre-existing respiratory problems such as asthma or heart disease.
Those with symptoms should consider consulting their personal
physician.

A toll free air quality hotline has been established so New York
residents can stay informed on the air quality situation. The toll
free number is: 1 800 5 3 5, 1 3 4 5.
