After 33-38 tonight, highs should reach 63-68 Saturday.

Despite high & mid cloudiness dimming, fading sun at times, the relative humidity will continue to drop through the day.  Dew points will drop to the 20s & 30s with relative humidity dropping below 20%.  That with wind gusts 35-50 mph (sustained 20-25 mph) will make for near to critical field & brush fire risk.

With lots of clouds & strong southwest winds to 40 mph tomorrow night, temperatures will only drop into the 50s.  The fire risk will still be elevated even in the night due to continued low dew points in the 20s to 30s.

A couple of isolated showers will give way to a period of a few scattered showers & isolated t'shower Sunday.  Rainfall totals should be 0.10" or less.

After highs of 60-65, we should fall into the 50s.

It will be a windy at intervals with gusts 35-40 mph at times as winds turn from the southwest early to the west, then northwest.

The front that goes through will then begin to migrate back north as a warm front.  Winds will turn to the northeast to east Sunday night-Monday morning with skies turning mostly cloudy to cloudy

Period of rainfall should pass Monday, especially in the PM.  Highs will run in the 50s to as high as 62.  The rainfall coverage looks to go up to 45%.  Amounts of 0.15-0.40" are possible.

Any rainfall looks isolated Tuesday with sunshine appearing with cloudiness & highs 62-67 & winds turning to the southeast & south.

Windy, warm weather occurs mid-week before cold front passes Thursday night with line of storms possible.

Some rainfall may exceed 0.50" & parameters suggest a corridor of SLIGHT RISK for severe weather from west of Monticello & Lafayette to Missouri & northern Arkansas & a MARGINAL RISK around that corridor.  We will monitor.

Friday looks windy & cooler with a couple morning showers possible. 

A period of overall dry, seasonable, then warmer-than-normal weather looks to follow before some showers & storms return around the 30th.
