National Weather Service Saint Louis MO
325 PM CST Tue Feb 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Temperatures will continue be above average through Friday for most of the area.
Minimum afternoon relative humidity values on Wednesday will likely fall to

Illinois. This factor combined with southwest winds of 10-15mph and dry fuels will
cause elevated fire danger on Wednesday afternoon for these areas.
