Fire Weather Planning Forecast For NE Kansas/NW Missouri
National Weather Service Kansas City/Pleasant Hill MO
326 AM CST Wed Feb 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Elevated fire danger is expected today as southwesterly flow
will bring very warm temperatures to the area today and relative
humidity values decrease to 25 to 30 percent this afternoon.
Criteria-level RH values will be brief, and coupled with sustained
wind speeds of only 10 to 15 mph during this time, have held off
on any headlines for today. Regardless, extremely dry surface
fuels in combination with ample sunshine and low humidity will
lend to elevated fire weather danger today. Outdoor burning is
therefore strongly discouraged. Conditions will improve tomorrow
as low level moisture returns to the area.
