Forecast Discussion Extended Forecast
Thursday, April 24: As a cold front moves through eastern Kansas and departs to the east, moderate northwesterly winds behind the front will transport smoke from potential fires in the Flint Hills away from major metropolitan areas.

Friday, April 25: Surface high pressure to the southeast of Kansas will produce moderate to strong south-southwesterly winds in the eastern portion of the state, dispersing smoke and reducing smoke impacts in affected regions. However, these winds will also transport smoke from potential fires in the northeastern Flint Hills into Topeka.
This forecast is for air quality impacts only.
