Laura’s Look: Windy & Warm = Fire Danger

Weather Blog

A cold start to Wednesday. Winds tick back up raising a concern for fire danger.

Temperatures took a hit early this morning thanks to the lack of clouds and lowering winds. Make sure the kids are prepped for the cold before heading to school. Winds start off light before ramping up.

With the boost of southerly winds, a warm-up follows suit. A decent temperature gradient expected from west to east.

Fire weather alerts have been issued across western Kansas. Outdoor burning is highly discouraged again today as gusts top 40 MPH.

At the rate we’re going this spring, it would be too good to be true if the warmth lasted. Another cold snap hits for Friday with a chance of rain and snow. Little to no snow accumulation expected but could be a head ache for travelers.

There’s another opportunity for rain this weekend, I’ll show you when you’ll need the umbrella! Join us on Kansas Today from 4:30-7 a.m. – Laura Bannon
