Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
816 AM CST Tue Feb 21 2017

A Red Flag warning is in effect this afternoon for locations along
and north of Interstate 80. Dangerous fire weather conditions are
expected due to the combination of gusty winds...low relative
humidity and dry grasses. Even south of the Warning area...including
North Central Kansas...fire danger will still be elevated...but will
not be as critical due to somewhat lighter breezes. Afternoon highs
will be at or near records with readings in the middle and upper
70s. Fire weather conditions are also a concern on Wednesday as
conditions remain warm and dry. The weather pattern will undergo
changes for the latter part of the week when a storm system crosses
the Central Plains bringing chances for rain...accumulating snow and
colder air. Although there are still a few days for things to change
a little...at least for now...the highest potential for snow amounts
in excess of 2 inches from Thursday evening into Friday appears to
focus north of the Interstate 80 corridor.
