National Weather Service Memphis TN
444 AM CST Mon Dec 11 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM THIS MORNING TO 6 PM CST
THIS EVENING...

.DISCUSSION...

A combination of low relative humidities, gusty winds and dry fuels will
likely result in Red Flag conditions across Northeast Arkansas today.
Expect elevated fire danger conditions across the rest of the Mid-South
today. A cold front will slide through the area tonight bringing high
temperatures back into the 40s for Tuesday. Dry conditions and a slow
return to more seasonal weather is anticipated for the remainder of the
week.

South winds will bring gulf moisture northward next weekend...with
an increase in clouds...rain chances and temperatures.
