Fire Weather Forecast For Central/NE South Dakota WC MN
National Weather Service Aberdeen SD
258 PM CDT Wed Mar 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A warm front lifting across the region will generate some light
precipitation. As this feature continues northeast, it will be
replaced by milder air across western and central South Dakota.
Winds will also increase out of the south with gusts to around
40mph.

More moisture is headed into the region for the end of the work
week, although not quite the intensity that was originally
advertised as guidance has shifted the track of the system farther
south. The weekend and next week will feature near average
temperatures.
