    MONDAY

    Warm temperatures and lots of sunshine to enjoy this Monday, but the strong southern winds are going to increase the grass fire risk for today.

    Conditions are dry in the atmosphere and at the ground. It has been nearly a month since Green Country has seen a decent amount of rain. That means that should anything catch on fire, it could spread very quickly.

    TUESDAY

    Temperatures remain in the 70s for the afternoon with cloud coverage increasing throughout the day as a cold front moves closer with some rain chances.

    Isolated showers will be possible in the evening and overnight hours going into Wednesday.

    Not everyone will see rain and some may only get a few drops, but some parts of the area may end up with some measurable rain.

    WEDNESDAY

    The morning starts with left over showers from Tuesday night and temperatures come down a bit behind the cold front.

    Even with the cooler temperatures, highs will still be about five degrees above what is considered average for the end of November.

    Once the rain clears out, the clouds will start to clear out allowing for sunshine into the rest of the week.

    THURSDAY

    Mostly sunny skies make another appearance with temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s across Green Country. The last day of November is staying on the above average train that has been happening for about a week.

    FRIDAY

    Temperatures warm back up into the 60s as a warming trend make another appearance. Winds will be back out of the south and we could see an increased fire risk again going into the weekend.

    WEEKEND

    Great weekend for any outdoor activities. Temps will be in the 60s and 70s well above average by nearly 20 degrees.

    Sunshine will be sticking around and things should remain dry. Strong southern winds could increase the grass fire risk again, so keep an eye out for any fires and don't do any burning.
