After a chilly start to your day with morning temps in the upper 30s to low 40s expect a warm up. Highs will reach 70 by this afternoon with partly cloudy skies expected. The fire danger is elevated as we have very dry air in place this afternoon. Winds will gust up to 15mph, which would make fires spread quickly. Check with your local burn permitting authorities on if/when you should burn.

A warm front nears from the south west overnight and surges north during the day Wednesday. This brings clouds to the area and warms our temps into the mid 80s!
