URGENT - FIRE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Little Rock AR
326 AM CST Mon Dec 11 2017

...Red Flag Conditions Likely Across Most of the Area Today...

.The combination of breezy conditions...very low relative
humidity values and low fuel moisture levels will create Red Flag
conditions this afternoon. Many areas are also in severe to
extreme drought...so even in areas where winds may not get as
strong...the low humidity and very dry conditions will still
generate dangerous wild fire conditions. Expect some improving
wild fire conditions by this evening as winds decrease and
humidity values increase. However...no rainfall is forecast for
the next several days...so a high wild fire danger will persist.
