Some gusty winds are expected Friday with some gusts exceeding 30 mph, especially over the Ozarks plateau. This will lead to some localized elevated fire weather concerns this afternoon as
humidity levels drop into the 30s. Rain will begin to overspread the area once again Friday night and continue into Saturday evening. Currently, we are expecting a widespread 1 to 1.5 inches of rain across the area, which may cause some localized flooding on Saturday.
