...Very High Fire Danger This Afternoon...

Gusty southwest winds of 20 to 35 mph combined with low relative
humidity values and dry surface fuels will lead to a very high
fire danger across eastern Iowa, northeast Missouri and portions
of northwest Illinois this afternoon. If a fire does start in
these conditions, the risk of it spreading uncontrollably is very
high. As a result, any outdoor burning is discouraged this
