Juneau under fire weather watch
AkGlobe News/10195422

The National Weather Service has issued a fire weather watch for Juneau and surrounding areas due to persistent warm and dry weather. Open burning is not recommended at this time; however, a suspension is not yet in effect. A burn ban will be put into place if the watch escalates to a red flag warning.

In especially warm and dry conditions, fires in lightweight fuels such as grass and brush can spread very quickly, especially up hill.

Risk will decrease as humidity increases and when rain resumes.
