.DISCUSSION...

Cooler temperatures and gusty west to northwest winds will continue
through this afternoon. Lowest relative humidity values will range
from 35 to 40 percent in most areas. Some partial clearing is expected
mainly across far southern Missouri this afternoon but considerable
cloud cover will likely linger through much of the day especially
across central Missouri.

Saturday could bring elevated fire weather conditions as relative
humidity falls to around 20 percent.

Rain chances increase Sunday and Sunday night as a disturbance
approaches from the west.
