The warning runs Monday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Relative humidity levels will decline rapidly after sunrise while breezy winds with gusts up to 35 mph are expected to rise in the late morning and peak in the afternoon. Any fires that develop would spread rapidly. Outdoor burning is not recommended.
