Warm & Windy — Wind Advisory in effect, Elevated Fire Danger Today —

WIND ADVISORY is in effect for extreme western Missouri and Arkansas from 10 AM to 10 PM. South winds will be sustained 25-35 mph with gusts to 45 mph at times. Driving east-west highways could be difficult, especially next to trucks. Take in/ tie down any loose objects!

Our potent low is continuing to deepen to our west over the Rockies. This will fill in very strong southerly winds and a very warm air mass into the Ozarks.

Even outside the advisory, southerly winds will gust to 40 mph today. Take it easy on the roads! Mostly sunny skies and incredibly strong winds will push highs into the lower 80’s today, about 5 degrees shy of record! Our high reaches 83 degrees in Springfield but dew points stay in the lower 50’s, signifying a very dry air mass. With the gusty winds and relative humidity at 35%, NO outdoor burning! We have an elevated to significant fire danger today.

Tonight winds will stay strong out of the south and lows stay warm in the lower 60’s.

By tomorrow morning the front pushes through with winds shifting to the north/west. This will usher in a much cooler air mass with temperatures falling back into the 50’s all afternoon. Winds will remain gusty to 35 mph and relative humidity low, again, NO outdoor burning!

Lows drop into the middle 30’s by Friday but winds hold steady so frost development should be minimal.

By Friday we’ll have less wind and cool sunshine, highs in the 50’s and lows in the 30’s by Saturday morning.

Our next storm system approaches from the south with showers arriving by Saturday evening. Showers linger early on Sunday with highs in the 50’s both days. 

Temperatures warm back into the 70’s early next week.
