Very warm temperatures will be felt today. Expect highs in the upper 80’s and lower 90’s. A dry line will enter the western Big Country this afternoon. This dry air will allow temperatures to reach the low to middle 90’s. There will be a gusty SSW wind. The strongest winds will be in the eastern Big Country and Heartland. South winds will be sustained at 20-30 MPH with 35 MPH wind gusts in those areas. The combination of the dry air and the winds will make fire weather elevated in the western Big Country. A RED FLAG WARNING will be in effect for Kent County from 1PM – 9PM. This means that fire weather will be near critical.
A weak cold front will move in tonight. The forecast will stay dry. Temperatures will fall into the middle to upper 50’s behind the front. The southern Big Country and Heartland will remain south of the front. As a result, it will only cool to the low 60’s. It will stay windy overnight.
