Hot and mainly dry conditions will be in place across western and

central Wyoming through this weekend. Winds will be light, but

much of the vegetation below 8500 ft is very dry. Temperatures

will reach the mid to upper 90s over the lower elevations, with

temperatures over 100 possible in the Bighorn Basin Saturday.

Relative humidity will drop below 15 percent in the afternoons.

Check for local burning restrictions in your area.  Outdoor

burning is highly discouraged! Activities that produce sparks,

such as grinding and welding are not recommended. Avoid parking

in high grass and do not throw cigarette butts out. Drown your

campfires!
