Big warm up!

Good Saturday morning! It will be a fantastic day today with unseasonably warm temperatures surging into the region. Here is my Saturday forecast high temperature map:

I think there will be a couple records broken today.

Now with these warm temperatures will come breezy winds between 10 and 20 mph. The air will also be dry with dewpoints in the low 20's. This will cause favorable fire conditions during the afternoon. For that reason, a Red Flag Warning has been issued for parts of the area.

Take a look at the severe weather map below:

The Red Flag Warning extends from Kansas City to points west and southwest. The warm, windy, and dry conditions forecast this afternoon will create exteremely favorable fire conditions. So be aware if you are camping or are using an open flame outside.
A cold front will push through on Sunday morning and temperatures will fall Monday night.
I will have a new entry tomorrow.
