Dry conditions and weather forecasts for high temperatures, little rain and dry air will create moderate wildfire danger across Arkansas throughout the July 4th holiday. With firework displays planned between now and the weekend, the Arkansas Forestry Commission advises residents to use caution and closely monitor for outdoor burning and sparks from firework displays.
