Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
1156 AM CST Tue Feb 21 2017

A Red Flag warning is in effect this afternoon for all local
Nebraska counties mainly along and north of Highway 6. Dangerous
fire weather conditions are expected due to the combination of gusty
winds...low relative humidity dropping below 20 percent...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 colder air...rain and accumulating snow. 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 into Friday appears to focus north of the
Interstate 80 corridor.
