KSStorm.Info Briefing: April 6, 2022

Dangerous wind plus bone-dry air on not-yet-green grass...a recipe for extreme to catastrophic grassland fire danger today.

Fire is the weather risk for the next two days, as strong northwest wind and very low humidity combine with grassland that hasn’t fully woken up for spring combine to produce the potential for catastrophic fire spread. A Red Flag Warning is in effect for the western 2/3 of Kansas today, as wind will gust frequently to above 50mph. Maintained wind speeds are expected to be 30-40mph.


Wind backs off some tomorrow, but not a lot. This post-frontal air will stick around through Friday, which will still be breezy and cool. But the weekend doesn’t look bad — sunny both days with temperatures warming nicely. We could see an active period Monday through Wednesday, but right now models are shunting that off a bit to our south and east.
