Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the Heartland
National Weather Service Paducah KY
431 AM CST Tue Dec 12 2017

.DISCUSSION...
The temperature roller coaster continues with much colder
conditions expected today in the wake of a cold frontal passage.
While not as extreme as yesterday, the fire weather potential
will remain elevated today over the Missouri Ozarks with dry
fuels and relative humidity forecast to drop below 25 percent
this afternoon. However, gusty northwest winds will be at their
strongest in the morning and should begin to diminish in the
afternoon when humidity is at its lowest.

Milder conditions are forecast on Wednesday in advance of the
next cold front, which will bring a return to colder weather for
Thursday and Friday. Some moderation in temperatures is expected
by the weekend as our next chance of rain arrives late Saturday
night and Sunday.
