Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western
and North Central Nebraska
National Weather Service North Platte NE
340 PM CST Sun Nov 19 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Localized Red Flag Warning conditions are expected across portions
of fire weather zones 204 and 210 on Monday. Warm temperatures.
low relative humidity and breezy west northwest winds of 25 mph
are forecast. There are questions as to how much shading from
cirrus will occur in the afternoon. If full sun occurs through the
late afternoon, then the potential of widespread RFW conditions
exists for zones 204 and 210. We will monitor the situation
closely for the event a RFW is needed.
