Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Kansas
National Weather Service Wichita KS
518 AM CDT Fri Mar 24 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM THIS MORNING TO 6 PM CDT
THIS EVENING...

.DISCUSSION...

Southerly winds gusting to 30-40 mph, above normal temperatures and
near 100% cured grasslands will result in very high to extreme fire
danger from late this morning into this afternoon. The area of
greatest concern at this time is South-Central Kansas, where minimum
relative humidities in the 20-30% range are expected. We have
upgraded the Fire Weather Watch to a Red Flag Warning there, and
expanded westward into South-Central Kansas from late this morning
through late this afternoon. Cooler air will spread into the region
tonight into Saturday, lessening the fire danger. However, northwest
winds of 10-20 mph will still result in high fire danger.
