Fire Weather Warning
Statement as of 9:30 AM CDT on April 01, 2015

... Red flag warning now in effect until 7 PM CDT this evening for
extreme fire conditions... .

* timing... winds will steadily increase this morning and persist
through the afternoon. Fire weather conditions will remain
extremely dangerous all day.

* Wind... south increasing to around 30 mph with gusts over 40 mph
at times.

* Relative humidity... as low as 25 to 30 percent.

* Fuel... grasses remain nearly 100 percent cured and surface
fuels are highly combustible.

* Impacts... any fires will spread very rapidly and be very
difficult to control in these dangerous conditions. Outdoor
burning is highly discouraged and should be avoided.

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.
