The fire danger remains high, so don't burn anything outside. Several counties and communities have burn bans in place.

You might also want to bring any loose Christmas decorations inside.

Grant Dade says the winds will weaken a bit later Wednesday night but still gust over 20 mph as a cold front moves through the area.

Temperatures will be mild but will turn sharply colder after midnight. Lows by the morning will be in the upper 20s.



Thursday will be partly cloudy early and become mostly sunny late. It will be colder with highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Behind this system, the beginning of next week looks dry and cool but not too cold or windy for a change. 

Brian Alworth said that some of our longer-range models have been consistent with bringing a strong upper low across the middle of the country on Christmas weekend, which would likely lead to a swath of various sorts of precipitation in the Midwest.

But at this point, it is too early to accurately predict what form the precipitation will take exactly where, but it could be a bit of a travel issue.
