Effective September 1, 2015 at midnight central daylight time (cdt)
or 0500 Universal coordinated time (utc)... the NWS in Hastings

The information contained in the rfd is available in a variety of
other more site-specific fire weather related products, such as the
fire weather planning forecast (fwf)... which provides County
specific... fire weather related forecast information. Fire
weather related information is also available on the NWS Hastings
fire weather webpage and via the hourly weather graph... which
provides an hourly depiction of forecast weather elements for a
location of the users choice. All of the this information can be
found at www.Weather.Gov/Hastings.

In south central Nebraska... information similar to that found in
the rfd can be obtained on the Nebraska Forest service website at
www.Nfs.Unl.Edu. Once on this Page... pull it down a bit and you
will see the Nebraska fire danger map. Click on the link next to the
map and a County-based... graphical representation of Nebraska

elements and is updated daily. At this time... a similar map of
fire danger is not available for the State of Kansas.
