...Elevated Fire Danger Today...
A dry air mass will remain in place across the Mid-South today
with relative humidity falling to 25 to 30 percent. This dry air,
coupled with southerly winds gusting to 20-25 mph, will result in
elevated fire weather conditions this afternoon, especially along
and west of the Mississippi River. Increasing moisture and the
possibility of rain showers will relieve dry conditions on Sunday.
Caution should be used with any outdoor burning. Contact your
local government or fire control officials for information
regarding any burn restrictions.
