Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Hastings NE
412 AM CDT Thu Mar 16 2017

412 AM CDT Thu Mar 16 2017

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for south central Nebraska and
portions of north central Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

This afternoon into early this evening, parts of the outlook area,
primarily some counties west of the Highway 281 corridor, could
at least observe near-critical fire weather conditions as relative
humidity drops to 25-percent-or-lower and winds gust to around 20
MPH or higher.

In the far western local Nebraska counties of Dawson, Gosper and
Furnas, there is more concern for meeting outright-critical fire
weather conditions due to stronger westerly winds, and as a
result, a Red Flag Warning is in effect for these three counties
from 3 to 8 PM.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

Elevated fire weather conditions are possible across much of the
outlook area Sunday. With a very mild airmass in place, expect near
critical relative humidity values across much of the local area,
along with sustained southerly winds of 10 to 20 mph.


Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
