Special Statement
Issued: 4:10 AM CST Dec. 13, 2017 – National Weather Service

... 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.
