Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Kansas
National Weather Service Wichita KS
401 AM CDT Thu Mar 23 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO 11 PM CDT THIS
EVENING...

.DISCUSSION...
A very high to extreme grassland fire danger returns to the region
today and Friday as a strong low pressure area and gusty south
winds move into the plains. The greatest potential for
extreme/elevated fire risk will be over Central Kansas for this
afternoon through this evening. So a Red Flag warning has been
issued for portions of Central Kansas.

Dry relative humidity levels will move across the area on Friday
afternoon as a dryline pushes east with a wind shift to the west.
This will lead to a very high to possibly extreme grassland fire
danger for areas along the Kansas Turnpike on Friday.
