LOUISVILLE — The National Weather Service has issued a fire watch from Saturday afternoon through Saturday evening because of low humidity and gusty winds in Southern Indiana.

Winds will be out of the south from 15 to 25 mph with gusts near 30 mph.

“The weather conditions will combine with dry fuels to enhance wildfire danger across the area. Any outdoor fires could quickly spread out of control,” the watch reads.
