Teachman’s Take: Warm, windy & dry – Wednesday’s elevated fire risk

Weather Blog

It has been a beauty of a day with warming winds.  Highs for most of the state were in the 50s.  More of this is to come through Thursday.

Our attention for Wednesday shifts to concerns regarding wildfires.  With warm conditions, gusty winds and low humidity levels, this raises our fire risk especially for areas in western Kansas.  Burning is greatly discouraged!

Overnight temps will be chilly in the 20s and 30s and Wednesday’s highs will be in the 60s!  Elkhart could squeeze out 70!

A cold front on Thursday will drop our temperatures in the 30s for Friday and days going forward.  We will enter an active weather pattern with numerous, quick-moving disturbances.

The first on Friday will bring a wintry mix to all snow.  Light accumulations of snow are possible.  

Another system is in store for Saturday night and Sunday morning.  Another impulse sweeps through next Monday and Tuesday.  Temperatures for both of these systems looks cold enough to produce snow.  Be sure to stay with the KSN Storm Track 3 weather department as we track each of these systems into Kansas.  We sure could use the moisture…
