...ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS WITH STRONG WINDS TODAY...

.DISCUSSION...

Windy conditions will prevail today with winds increasing this
morning and becoming strong this afternoon. Peak gusts up to
40-50 MPH are anticipated, highest in the eastern Panhandle.
However, the level of afternoon humidity remains modest at this
time with the driest conditions about 20 percent across portions
of far southwest NEB, eastern Panhandle, and northwest NEB.
Otherwise, highs will be cooler today compared to yesterday,
albeit near normal values.

Tomorrow, breezy to windy conditions are expected. The strongest
winds will be over north central NEB with peak gusts up to 45 MPH,
elsewhere peak gusts up to 30 to 35 MPH are expected. Afternoon
humidity remains a limiting factor tomorrow also with the driest
conditions in the eastern Panhandle and extreme southwest NEB.
