...Very High Fire Danger Today...
Very high fire danger is expected Monday across northern Missouri.
Sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph, with gusts reaching and
exceeding 35 mph, combining with a reinforcing shot of dry air
that is already dominating in the region, will result in an
elevated to significant fire weather risk.
These weather conditions, along with very dry grasses and
underbrush, could result in the rapid spread of fires. Therefore,
outdoor burning is highly discouraged tomorrow. Care should be
taken with open flames and the disposal of cigarette butts.
