Yesterday's red flag warning certainly bore out here in central Mass, with a brush fire over by Quinsigamond Community College that spread to a house, and several others around the county.
We're off the red flag warning today, though it continues in northern New England.
At 7:30, it is 61 degrees and rising.
The humidity is 66% and steady; it's been raining for the past half hour.
The barometer is 30.03 inches of mercury and steady under cloudy skies.
Despite the rain (which won't amount to much) today's fire danger remains HIGH.
We're lucky enough to have a pair of wrens that are building a nest here by the Lodge, so we're enjoying their songs each morning.
Today's National Weather Service forecast is Scattered showers, mainly before 9am. Cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 77. West wind 7 to 9 mph becoming north in the morning. Chance of precipitation is 30%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.
