..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.
