Fire hazard, fire hazard. . . . . Low humidity readings and strong, gusty winds have given our area fire danger levels for today across the region. We will continue to see such levels for most of our Wednesday. Notices may be issued.
However, we will gradually see the humid air increase in our area as the day progresses. This will reduce the risk of fire as the day progresses.
We will see increased humidity in our area during our Wednesday, due to a frontal system approaching our area. We will see another abnormally hot afternoon on Wednesday. Most high temperatures will reach the upper 60s to mid 70s.
We will see the aforementioned frontal system moving through our region on Wednesday evening. This will bring our area a good chance of rain and thunderstorms late Wednesday night and into our Thursday. Some precipitation will be heavy at times. Some of the thunderstorms will be on the strong to severe side at times. All severe weather modes will be possible on Thursday.
After the frontal system leaves our area on Thursday evening, we will see some more fairly cold air returning to our area for our Friday. Overall Friday will be a very windy and cold day with temperatures remaining mostly in the 40s for much colder highs and wind chills than that.
