It has been 158 days since a tenth of an inch of moisture has fallen in Dodge City. The drought looks to be more than just a seasonal drought.

We have many reports of large deep cracks in many areas- send us images. The wheat crop has been rated at over 60 percent poor.

WEDNESDAY- Highs in the mid 60’s East to Mid 70s West.

COULD WESTERN SECTIONS SEE 90??

STRONG SW winds will bring DRY air into SW and parts of South Central areas before turning to the SSE across Northeast and North Central KS.

Winds will gust to around 40 and we could see blowing dust.

This will bring ????????EXTREME FIRE DANGER???????? to many areas Thursday morning through mid evening.

Notice there is a chance for THUNDER late Thursday night across areas North of I-70 and close to I-135 Corridor and points East -along the Warm front/Warm sector.

Stay tuned-

Remember, ????????FIRE THREAT???????? the NEXT 3 DAYS…Extreme threat Thursday and Friday…
