Weather conditions are lending themselves to an elevated grass fire situation today.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS) in Wichita, above normal temperatures, low relative humidity, and breezy southwest winds will support elevated grass fire concerns once again today. High temperatures are forecast to be in the high 60s to low 70s through much of the area today, NWS noted.

Please be mindful of anything that can cause sparks, and be careful with any outdoor burning.
