Kiowa County missed most chances for severe thunderstorms Saturday, but won't dodge the wind and high fire danger through the weekend into the early part of the week.

A red flag warning for fire risk was in effect Saturday and is expected to return Sunday, while a fire weather watch covers the area Monday. The watch will likely become the third consecutive day for red flag warnings. All open burning and other activities which could spark a fire should be avoided.
