The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for today for the Lakes Region.
Weather Forecasters recommend against any outdoor burning in the region today because of low humidity and strong wind coupled with warmer temperatures could cause any fire to get out of control quickly.
The warning includes the Branson Area and all of the Lakes Region Counties including Taney and Stone as well as Barry and Ozark counties. The Warning extends north and east including Springfield and going all the way to the St. Louis area and the Boot Heal.
