Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern/Central MO and Southwest IL
National Weather Service Saint Louis MO
552 AM CDT Tue Apr 17 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Conditions will approach Heightened Fire Danger on Wednesday afternoon,
but there is some question about the minimum afternoon relative humidity
values. Previous forecasts suggested that RH values would fall to around
30 percent on Wednesday afternoon, but the latest forecast suggests that
it would only fall to around 35 percent. Gusty west winds and low fuel
moisture values are still expected. There will be little opportunity
for widespread rain this week.
