Fire Weather Planning Forecast For NE Kansas/NW Missouri
National Weather Service Kansas City/Pleasant Hill MO

.DISCUSSION...

With cloudy conditions expected today, along with some chances for
precipitation, fire weather concerns will be low. However, RH
values will drop back off on Saturday afternoon, reintroducing
fire weather concerns. Winds look to remain below critical
thresholds but with not enough precip to make a significant dent
in the rather dry grounds, the dry fuels combining with low RHs
will still pose a danger. Fire weather concerns look to slacken
for the latter half of the weekend.
