This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Central Kansas,
South Central Kansas and Southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong west and southwest winds gusting at 40 to 50 mph will fuel
very high to catastrophic grassland fire danger especially this
afternoon through the early evening hours. Winds are then expected
to flip around to the northwest behind a strong cold front which
move through during the afternoon into evening with gusts 40 to 50
mph still likely. See the latest red flag warning and wind advisory
for additional details.

A brief period of light snow and potentially ice pellets is
anticipated this evening in portions of north central to southeast
Kansas generally from Saline County to Neosho County. Minimal if any
snow accumulation is expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Very high grassland fire danger returns Thursday and this weekend
as warmer temperatures and south winds increase across the region.
On Sunday afternoon, a period of extreme grassland fire danger is
forecast from the Flint Hills and points west. There is potential
for very high fire danger on Monday as well. Additionally strong
winds with potential gusts to 45 mph are possible in north central
Kansas on Thursday and in the Flint Hills on Sunday.

Another system on Sunday will bring chances for thunderstorms in the
evening into early Monday specifically along and east of a line from
Salina to Hutchinson to Caldwell. Severe storms are not anticipated
at this time.

WEATHER ZONES 047, 050, 051, 052, 053, 067, 068, 069, 070, 071,

* Impacts...Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly
  and become very difficult to control. Outdoor burning is not

* Additional details...A cold front will move through during the

  direction. This will make it harder for fire fighting efforts if
  any fire starts prior to its arrival.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now, or will shortly. A combination of
strong winds, low relative humidity and warm temperatures can
contribute to extreme fire behavior.
