...GUSTY SOUTH WINDS TO CONTINUE TODAY...

Gusty southerly winds will continue across the four state region
today. Wind gusts from 30 to 40 mph will be commonplace once again,
though gusts may subside just a bit as we head through the
afternoon. Area boaters, especially those operating smaller
watercraft, should be prepared for white cap conditions and strong
wind gusts to near 40 mph. High-profile vehicles traveling on
east-west oriented highways may need to use a little extra
caution as well.

In addition, the gusty winds will combine with very dry
vegetation to produce an elevated wildland fire risk across the
region today. Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged. One
uncontrolled brush fire burned over 20 acres yesterday in
southwestern Kentucky.
