HOW TO WATCH FOX WEATHER ON TV
Simmering weather is forecast across much of the central and northern Plains. Highs are expected to reach into the upper-90s and triple digits from the central High Plains to South Dakota, which equates to around 20 degrees above average.
Fire Weather Warnings have also been issued for parts of northeast Colorado, northwest Kansas, central and western Nebraska, as well as south-central South Dakota.
This is due to the passage of a cold front, aiding in the development of critically dry and breezy conditions.
