Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Kansas and Southwest and Central Missouri
National Weather Service Springfield MO
229 PM CST Tue Dec 12 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Elevated fire weather conditions will exist area wide Wednesday
as another dry cold front pushes across the region. Increasing wind
along with low humidity levels will result in an elevated fire
weather risk.

Ultimately the southern Missouri drought is expected to worsen
this week but there is some chance for precipitation later
this weekend.
