.DISCUSSION...

Relative humidity has increased over southwest NEB this evening
with cooling temperatures and, combined with winds lessening some,
critical fire weather conditions are no longer in place.

Tomorrow, highs in the 90s will continue over central and portions
of southwest Nebraska along with modest southerly winds thus fire
weather concerns are elevated. Otherwise, a cold front is moving
across the area from northwest to southeast.
