Fire Weather Warning
Statement as of 4:14 AM CDT on March 30, 2015

... Red flag warning in effect from noon today to 7 PM CDT this
evening for extreme fire conditions... .

The National Weather Service in Des Moines has issued a red flag
warning for extreme fire conditions... which is in effect from
noon today to 7 PM CDT this evening.

* Wind... southwest to west winds at 20 to 25 mph with frequent
gusts to 30 mph.

* Relative humidity... humidity values will drop to around 20
percent this afternoon.

* Fuel... grasses remain nearly 100 percent cured across the
warning area.

* Impacts... any fires that develop will have the potential to
spread very rapidly due to windy and dry conditions. Any outdoor
burning is highly discouraged and should be avoided today.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now... or will shortly. A combination of
strong winds... low relative humidity... and warm temperatures will
create explosive fire growth potential.
