Dry air and windy conditions in the area over the next few days could heighten the risk of rapidly moving wildfires. Any prescribed burns during the Fire Weather Watch period could quickly become out of control during these conditions.

NWS says it may issue a Red Flag Warning in the near future.

On Friday, the high temperature will reach about 50 degrees but winds will be steady at 15 mph and gusting to 30 mph. The relative humidity level is expected to be as low as 20%.

Forecasters say cold air will move into the area and likely will lead to a Freeze Warning tonight but NWS does not expect frost to form due to steady wind.

The clearing overnight will bring in a clear sky for Thursday, with a high of 52 degrees expected. The low Thursday night is expected to bottom out at freezing here in Pottsville.

Eventually, this cold air in place will move out and temperatures are expected to slowly increase into next week. However, low pressure systems will train through the area next week, leading to some unsettled weather, according to National Weather Service.
