Low humidity and winds gusting to about 20 miles per hour have prompted the National Weather Service to issue a red flag warning due to high fire danger conditions.
The warnings are posted from noon until 8 p.m. today and from noon until 7 p.m. Saturday.
With dry weather and drought conditions, people are urged to be extra careful and not do anything that could ignite a fire such as throwing cigarette butts out of cars.
The red flag warning covers all but extreme eastern Georgia.
