.DISCUSSION...

Cool northeasterly flow will continue today as temperatures
struggle to reach 50 degrees. Increased moisture and a few showers
may reach the Missouri River, but should not reach any further
north. Stronger northeast winds arrive for Saturday ahead of an
incoming storm system. Temperatures will continue to struggle into
the 50s, but the combination of increased winds and warmer
temperatures west of the James River may lead to a slightly
elevated fire danger risk. By Sunday and Monday, widespread rains
are anticipated. Rainfall amounts may be greater than 1 inch in
many locations with a risk for accumulating snow Sunday night and
Monday morning. The fire danger risk will be minimal into next
week.
