This hazardous weather outlook is for extreme southwest Nebraska…
northwest Kansas and east central Colorado.
.DAY ONE…THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT…
The passage of a cold front this afternoon and early evening has led
to gusts up to 45 mph along and behind the front. SOme patchy blowing
dust could occur as a result. Elevated fire weather concerns this
afternoon with relative humidity values dropping to near warning
criteria ahead of the front though confidence is becoming lower. The
main concern is if any thunderstorms develop, lightning strikes
could cause fires as the entire Tri-State area is dry at this time.

Sunday. Saturday has a chance to meet fire weather condition
criteria primarily in eastern Colorado.
Gusty winds, up to 50 mph, will be widespread Sunday. Patchy blowing
dust could occur as a result. Latest guidance has decreased relative
humidity values some Sunday leading to a Fire Weather Watch in
effect from 11 AM MDT/12 PM CDT to 8 PM MDT/9 PM CDT Sunday.
