A Red Flag Warning goes into effect at Noon this Friday until 8PM for the entire Lake of the Ozarks Region.

Officials with the National Weather Service say conditions of low relative humidity and high winds can be the fuel that spreads wildfires across the area.

Wind speeds of 20 to 30 miles an hour are also expected, with gusts as high as 45 miles an hour.

You’re encouraged to hold off on any burning plans until the Red flag warning is no longer in effect and the winds have died down.
