...Elevated Fire Danger Today...

The combination of strong gusty winds and dry vegetation will
result in an elevated fire danger today across the Quad State
region. Relative humidity will also be quite low and may even
approach Red Flag criteria this afternoon, particularly over the
Ozark foothills of southeast Missouri.

These weather conditions along with very dry grasses and
underbrush could result in the rapid spread of fires. Burn bans
are in effect for some counties and outdoor burning is highly
discouraged across the region. Check with local authorities for
the latest on area burn bans.

Conditions should improve significantly by sunset as winds
slacken and humidity recovers.

...Gusty Winds Expected Across Eastern Kentucky This Afternoon
and Evening...

.A fast moving area of low pressure will quickly increase the
winds across the area today and into the evening. As a result
south to southwest winds of 10 to 20 mph with gusts to between 30
and 35 mph can be expected at times. Wind gusts of these
magnitudes will be prone to blow around any lawn decorations or
garbage cans as well as make driving difficult for higher profile
vehicles on east to west oriented roads. The winds will be
strongest over western parts of the area with lesser gusts found
in the east - outside of the higher ridges near the Virginia
border where gusts to between 35 and 40 mph will be possible.
