Elevated fire dangers today

(Kirksville, MO) – Elevated Fire Danger This Afternoon and Tuesday. High fire danger is expected across eastern KS and portions of far western MO this afternoon, in areas following a cold front where humidity will drop very quickly and west northwest winds will gust to 30 to 40 mph. Further to the east, a higher potential for rain showers and a later timeframe for frontal passage will keep the fire danger more moderate.

High to very high fire danger is then anticipated area-wide on Tuesday, when very strong west northwest winds reach sustained speeds up to 30 mph and gusts to 40-45 mph, while humidity drops into the 25 to 30 percent range. Fuel moisture is also very low and may not improve much especially across eastern KS/western MO, where rain showers today will be widely scattered and rainfall accumulations will be a few hundredths at best. Outdoor burning is highly discouraged both days, and care should be taken with open flames and the disposal of cigarette butts.
