Breezy/gusty post-frontal winds are expected across portions of the
northern and central Plains on Tuesday. Over portions of southern NE
and KS, these winds could briefly overlap 25-30 percent RH during
the afternoon, given ample boundary-layer heating/drying. As a
result, locally/briefly elevated fire-weather conditions are
possible. Farther west, midlevel southwesterly flow will develop
across the Southwest — ahead of an approaching large-scale trough.
While this will likely support an overlap of breezy surface winds
and low RH across the region, fuels are generally not supportive of
large-fire spread at this time.
