FIRST WARN FORECAST: Elevated fire threat Thursday, highs in the low 50s
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - High pressure remains our dominant feature today as it continues to shift to the east into the Tennessee and Mississippi River Valleys.

Gusts up to 25 mph are expected and we do surge some moisture content to the atmosphere into the evening. This may lead to a small threat for some showers overnight for our southern and eastern counties. At this time, a 20% rain threat has been added to the forecast.
