John’s Tuesday Afternoon Forecast
Winds pick up this afternoon as a warm southwesterly flow sets up. Afternoon highs will be well above normal as temperatures reach the mid 80s in the metro. A few storms will be possible over the higher terrain. However, there is less moisture to work with than yesterday, so dry lightning will be a concern. Combine that with the wind and warm temperatures, fire concerns will be rather high today. Red flag warnings are up for the northern half of the state, with the exception of the Northern Mountains.
