.SHORT TERM... 
(Tonight and Sunday)

Strong, gusty winds will continue through the afternoon before 
calming later this evening. Until then, winds will continue to howl 
with sustained winds in the 25 to 35 MPH range with gusts as high as 
40 to 50 MPH. The ongoing wind advisory and Red Flag Warning will 
remain in effect until approximately 6 PM CST. Otherwise, expect 
much lower winds for tonight with low temperatures in the lower 30s. 

.LONG TERM...
(Sunday Night through Friday)

Low level flow will start to turn out of the south Sunday night 
as a surface and 850 mb ridge to the east expands southward.
Warmer and increasingly moist southerly flow will continue Monday
through Wednesday afternoon, with zonal flow in the upper levels.
This will result in a warming trend Sunday night through 
Wednesday afternoon. Expect highs in the mid to upper 60s Monday,
low 70s Tuesday, and low to mid 70s Wednesday. Meanwhile,
overnight lows Sunday night will be in the upper 30s, then the
upper 40s Monday night, and the low 50s Tuesday night. 

A cold front will move through the region Wednesday night, 
bringing a minor cool-down for Thursday with highs in the upper 
50s to upper 60s. Then warming up again Friday with the 850 mb 
thermal ridge strengthening with downslope westerly low level 
flow. Highs for Friday forecast to be in the upper 60s to low 70s.
There is a slight chance for some light rain showers Wednesday 
night through Thursday as an upper level short-wave and the
aforementioned cold front interact with low level moisture. Other
than that, no precipitation is forecast through Friday.

.FIRE WEATHER...
A Red Flag Warning will remain in effect until approximately 6 PM 
CST this evening. Fuels remain a bit dry and relative humidity 
values in the 10 to 20 percent range are ongoing (at 2 PM CST). This 
combined with the ongoing (at 2 PM CST) sustained winds in the 25 to 
35 MPH range will make it difficult to keep wildfires from 
spreading. However, conditions are expected to improve as winds will 
decrease around sunset.
