Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Hastings NE
508 AM CDT Sat Mar 18 2017

508 AM CDT Sat Mar 18 2017

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Near critical fire weather conditions are expected across much of
the forecast area this afternoon as increasing southerly winds and
relative humidity values below 25 percent are expected. While the
strongest winds are expected west of Highway 281...the lowest
relative humidity values are expected east of the Highway...which
should help keep more critical fire weather concerns at bay.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.

On both Sunday and Monday afternoons, at least small portions of the
outlook area could see near-critical fire weather conditions, as
relative humidity values fall to 25 percent or lower, and winds gust
to 20 MPH or higher. On Sunday, these conditions appear most favored
in the Dawson County Nebraska area, while on Monday, some places
mainly north of Interstate 80 could meet these thresholds. However,
neither afternoon currently appears to have a substantial, critical
fire weather threat.

Thursday into Thursday night, there is a chance for thunderstorms
within the outlook area.


Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
