Hazardous Weather Outlook

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for south central Nebraska and
portions of north central Kansas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

Much of the outlook area will see near-critical fire weather
conditions this afternoon, due to the combination of south-
southwest breezes gusting to around 20 MPH, and relative humidity
falling into the 15 to 25 percent range. However, the worst fire
weather conditions, likely reaching critical levels due to
increased potential for higher wind gusts of 25 to 30 MPH, will
focus in north central Kansas, as well as Webster, Nuckolls and
Thayer counties in south central Nebraska, where a Red Flag
Warning is in effect from 1 to 7 PM.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

Thursday afternoon, near-critical fire weather conditions are
possible, mainly in north central Kansas.

Thursday night, non-severe thunderstorms are possible across much
of the outlook area.

Early Friday morning, then again Friday night, there is a chance
for a wintry mix of precipitation to affect portions of the
outlook area. Early Friday morning, the best chances would be
north of Highway 92 in Nebraska. Friday night, the best chances
would be mainly east of a line from Ord Nebraska, to Beloit
Kansas. A light glaze of ice and some minor snow accumulation
would not be out of the question, but at this time, significant
wintry weather is not anticipated.


Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight, but any
reports of possible wildfires would be appreciated.
