wildfire red flag warnings

The National Weather Service has posted Red Flag Warnings and Fire Weather Watches for areas in Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas.

There is some confusion about the forecast in Nebraska. While the map shows Red Flag Warnings in at least two areas within the state, other indications are that those Warnings were cancelled.

All areas are expected to have strong winds and low humidities.

The map was current as of 11:20 a.m. MT on Sunday. Red Flag Warnings can change throughout the day as the National Weather Service offices around the country update and revise their forecasts.
