Grass Fire Risk: Elevated to Critical

Grass Fire and Range Fire conditions across Kansas vary from very high in the northeast to Near-Critical in the southwest. Burning is discouraged.

I’ve attached the Situation Reports produced by each NWS office that covers Kansas. Fire concerns are relevant until the late-weekend system wets down the range. However, humidity will be on the increase starting Saturday afternoon, and as it does fire risks will decrease somewhat.

Grass Fire and Range Fire conditions across Kansas vary from very high in the northeast to Near-Critical in the southwest. Burning is discouraged.
