southwest winds gusting to near 30 mph will result in active fire
behavior west of Highway 83.

Days 2-7 Discussion

A cold front will move across western Kansas Saturday morning, and
scattered thunderstorms can be expected in south central Kansas
near the front Saturday afternoon. The front will weaken and begin
to lift back north as a warm front Sunday night and Monday.
Scattered thunderstorms can be expected Saturday night in south
central Kansas north of the front, but chances for thunderstorms
will increase Sunday night with an enhanced low level jet. Warm
and windy conditions Tuesday will result in active fire behavior. Another
cold front will move through western Kansas Tuesday night into
