Hello Weather Watchers!!

I’m the only one in today- everyone else is at the NCAA in WICHITA!

Another day of WIND and EXTREME FIRE THREATS FOR AREA!

FRIDAY WILL BE A CATASTROPHIC THREAT DAY based on the GFDI – Grass Fire Danger Index for KS, OK, W TX. Strong West Winds gusting to 40+ and EXTREMELY LOW HUMIDITIES ARE A BAD COMBINATION!

A look ahead towards Sunday – we have a SLIGHT chance of Severe storms in the early evening a a piece of energy interacts with STRONG WIND SHEAR. The area of concern as of today :

CONFIDENCE IS NOT HIGH- However we do think anyone who sees a Thunderstorm could get >.50″!!

The better chances for moisture are NORTHERN AND NORTHEAST KS Tonight and again this weekend-

PLEASE STAY WEATHER AWARE – REPORT ANY SMOKE OR OPEN FLAME YOU SEE TO YOUR LOCAL 9-1-1!!

Any fires that do develop will be hard to get a handle on!

We will try and keep you posted –

PLEASE LET US KNOW IF ANY FIRES IN YOUR AREA…BY COMMENTING or POSTING PICTURES WITH LOCATION!

To our staff that’s off- HAVE FUN AND CHEER ON ALL OUR KANSAS TEAMS!!
