This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for south central Nebraska and
portions of north central Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

The combination of strong westerly and eventually northwesterly
winds this afternoon into this evening, along with very low
relative humidity this afternoon, has prompted the issuance of
both a High Wind Warning and Red Flag Warning, for critical fire
weather conditions, for portions of the outlook area. The High
Wind Warning will be in effect from 3 to 10 PM for north central
Kansas, along with Nebraska counties along and south of Interstate
80. The Red Flag Warning will be in effect from Noon to 6 PM for
counties along and south of the Nebraska-Kansas border. The
intense winds will also kick up areas of blowing dust that could
reduce visibility. Please refer to the Warning statements for more
details.

To the north of the official Red Flag Warning, at least
near-critical fire weather conditions will extend roughly as far
north as Interstate 80 this afternoon, due to relative humidity
falling as low as around 25 percent in the presence of the strong
winds.

To the north of the official High Wind Warning, Nebraska counties
north of Interstate 80 will also experience strong northwest winds
this afternoon into this evening, with gusts of at least 40 to 50
MPH likely, but with somewhat lower potential for gusts around 60
MPH compared to areas farther south.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

Although not as concerning as this afternoon`s fire weather
situation, near-critical fire weather conditions are forecast
Saturday afternoon in far western and southwestern portions of the
outlook area, mainly west of a line from Lexington Nebraska to
Plainville Kansas. This will be due to the combination of
relative humidity falling to between 20 and 25 percent, and
southerly winds gusting to around 25 MPH.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotters are encouraged to report any instances of possible wind
damage or wildfires that might occur this afternoon into this
evening, along with any measured wind gusts of 55 MPH or higher.
