Critical Fire Weather Conditions Today

Low pressure across the northern Plains - and high pressure across the central Rocky Mountains - will help produce hot dry and windy weather across parts of western and north central Nebraska today.  With temperatures rising into the upper 90s to near the century mark, humidities are expected to fall below 15 percent in some areas, with gusty south winds of 20 to 35 MPH forecast.

A Red Flag Warning for critical fire weather conditions will be in effect from noon CDT through 800 PM CDT, due to gusty winds and lowering humidities.
