Increased Fire Danger

Wind will howl from the south and southwest, gusting at times to 50 or 55mph. In addition, relative humidity values will be in the upper teens in western Kansas and the 20’s as far east as I-135. This will combine with the warm temperatures for increased fire danger and we may see a Red Flag warning issued for western areas tomorrow.


Any fire that starts will be difficult to control due to the strong wind.

Precipitation chances

The speed this front will have passing through the area and its earlier passage will lead to less moisture available, and the coldest air lagging several hours behind the front will remove some of the energy that could be used to start the snow- or rain-making process. We expect the front to pass dry for most, with slight chances for light rain or snow. These cold fronts typically move even faster than modeled so chances are probably a bit less than currently forecast.


Northwest of a Concordia to Syracuse line, winter driving conditions are possible Thursday and whatever snow does fall will be blown around quite a bit. It might be best to delay travel in that area to Friday if possible.
