...Elevated to Significant Fire Weather Risk Monday...

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Monday)
Issued at 125 PM CST Sun Dec 10 2017

The next dry cold frontal passage can be expected Monday as the
overall weather pattern remains generally unchanged. Southwesterly
winds tonight will shift to west and northwest on Monday with the
frontal passage. Temperatures will be on the mild side Monday with
highs generally in the 50s.

The combination of gusty winds up to around 35 mph and relative
humidity values of 20 to 35 percent will result in an elevated to
a significant fire weather risk Monday. Red Flag conditions will
be approached especially given the very dry fuels.

.LONG TERM...(Monday Night through Sunday)
Issued at 125 PM CST Sun Dec 10 2017

The weather pattern changes little this week as our region remains
under the influence of a dry northwesterly flow aloft. At the
surface we will dry frontal passages every couple of days bringing
fluctuating temperatures periodic wind shifts. Fire weather
conditions will remain a concern through the week.

ahead of an approaching cold front. Surface winds will shift to
the west and northwest on Monday with the frontal passage. The
potential for low level wind shear will have to be monitored for
later tonight and Monday morning.
