Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern/Central MO and Southwest IL
National Weather Service Saint Louis MO
314 PM CST Wed Feb 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Well-above normal temperatures will continue through the day on
Friday. Elevated fire danger conditions will exist Friday afternoon
for portions of the area due to the combination of strong WSW winds,
minimum relative humidity values of 20-30 percent, and dry fuels.
Much colder weather is in store for this weekend behind a cold
front which will pass through the area very late Friday afternoon
and evening.
