Laura's Look: Stronger Wind; Extreme Fire Danger

Stronger winds will be felt across Kansas which raises a concern for fire danger.

Starting off Tuesday on a pleasant note. You may notice an unfriendly, grass fire smell outside in the Metro. This is due to controlled burns in Butler County. Don't be alarmed.

With temperatures this mild, it won't take long to warm up. We're headed back to the 80s.

Red Flag Warnings have been posted due to extreme fire weather.

A not-so friendly Kansas wind will be felt in western Kansas. High Wind Watches and Warnings have  been posted for gusts to 65 MPH. With wind this strong, blowing dust can be expected.

After a brief taste of summer, it's back to Spring.

We are watching our end of the week storm system that looks to bring promising rain to Kansas.

For now, the threat of severe weather stays outside of Kansas during this time period. Widespread, beneficial rain to soak parts of the state that are in desperate need of the moisture. Make sure to check back with us frequently as we edge closer to the weekend. These meaningful rain chances linger into early Sunday morning. - Laura Bannon
