Fire Weather Planning Forecast For NE Kansas/NW Missouri

.DISCUSSION...

Higher relative humidity values above 50 percent will help
suppress the fire weather concerns, but winds will be very high
Friday morning with gusts near 40 mph so any fires may become out
of control quickly if they do occur. Widespread rainfall is
expected Friday afternoon and Saturday which should help to reduce
the dry fuels and any fire concerns in the upcoming days.
