Forecast Discussion Extended Forecast
Monday, March 2: Moderate southeasterly winds ahead of an approaching cold front will transport smoke from potential fires in the southwestern Flint Hills counties into Wichita.

Tuesday, March 3: A cold front will move through eastern Kansas, enhancing atmospheric mixing and producing moderate to strong winds. These conditions will help to disperse smoke, reducing smoke impacts throughout the region. However, moderate south-southwesterly winds through the morning hours may transport smoke from potential fires in the eastern Flint Hills into Topeka. In the afternoon and evening, north-northwesterly winds may transport smoke from potential fires in the eastern Flint Hills into Chanute.
This forecast is for air quality impacts only.
