.DISCUSSION...

Temperatures will top out in the 80s to low 90s, along with a
gradual increase in humidity across the Missouri Valley - resulting
in afternoon humidity dropping to between 30 and 40 percent. But the
real story will be the strong southerly winds developing today ahead
of a cold front. Sustained winds will top out in the 20 to 30mph
range with gusts between 35 and 45mph. Storms will form along the
front west river this afternoon and speed east during the evening
and overnight hours, with mainly dry conditions by Wednesday.

restricted to early morning or evening hours when wind speeds
are usually lower and the relative humidity is higher.

The outlook for Wednesday afternoon...The grassland fire danger
index will reach the moderate category.
