705 PM CDT Wed Apr 25 2018

.DISCUSSION...

A cold front will pass through the area late tonight, causing
winds to shift from southwest to north-northwest. Light rain will
be possible with this frontal passage, but rainfall totals are
expected to remain less than a tenth of an inch.

Breezy north-northwest winds will persist through Thursday, with
sustained winds in the 15 to 25 mph range and gusts up to 30 mph.
Minimum humidity values are expected to fall into the upper 20s
to 30s again, but with winds weakening slowly through the day, the
strongest winds and lowest humidity values are not expected to
occur concurrently.

A quiet and dry weather pattern is expected to set up for Friday
and Saturday. Minimum humidities will be in the 20s and 30s each
day. Sustained winds in the 15 to 20 mph range with gusts to 30
mph on Friday may cause near critical fire weather conditions
to develop.
