(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Volunteers with the American Red Cross went out in St. Joseph and Savannah on Saturday to make sure households have properly working smoke alarms.

It's part of the organization's "Sound The Alarm" program, which allows people to have a new smoke alarm installed in their home by Red Cross Volunteers.

Volunteers stress the importance of having working smoke alarms, they said it can be easy to overlook them if it's been a while since the last check.

"People need to stay on top of their smoke alarms," David Moyer, a volunteer said. "This is one of the main projects and goals of the American Red Cross is that people have working smoke detectors in their homes."

Red Cross volunteers installed smoke detectors in 11 homes across St. Joseph and Savannah, those in need of a new smoke alarm are urged to set up an appointment with the organization for installation, for more information click here.

Temperatures are very mild outside right now with most areas in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Today will be another warm and windy day with temperatures climbing into the lower 70s. Today we will have mostly sunny skies with a few clouds building in during the evening hours. Outdoor burning should be avoided today as low humidity and gusty winds continue. Winds will stay breezy over the next few days with wind gusts around 20-30 mph. A more active pattern of weather will settle in for most of this week with our first chance of light rain overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. A better chance for more moderate to heavy rain with possibly a few thunderstorms will move into the area Wednesday night into Thursday with a cold front. That front will stall south of our area late in the week, providing several more chances for rain throughout the rest of the week into the weekend. Temperatures will be a bit cooler after the cold front rolls through with highs back in the 50s.
