...Heightened Risk For Grass And Crop Fires Today...

.DISCUSSION...A week of drying, coupled with low relative
humidities and gusty south winds, will result in an increased
risk for crop and grass fires this afternoon. Showers and storms
return Saturday, with a few strong to potentially severe storms
Saturday evening. The responsible cold front sweeps east by
Sunday morning, ushering in cooler, more seasonable air. This cooler
pattern promises to stick around for the new week.
