Red flag warnings have been issued for areas of Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, and Missouri. Strong winds, low humidity and mild temperatures could contribute to wildfires starting and spreading very quickly.
On top of the red flag warnings, wind alerts are also in place today for a lot of the same areas.
