RANGELAND FIRE DANGER STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ABERDEEN SD
346 AM CDT WED MAY 18 2016

.DISCUSSION...

HIGH PRESSURE TO THE EAST WILL RESULT IN LIGHT SOUTHERLY
WINDS...THAT WILL SLOWLY BE ON THE INCREASE THROUGH THE COURSE OF
THE DAY AS THE HIGH DRIFTS TO THE SOUTHEAST. THESE WINDS WILL
EVENTUALLY DRAW MORE HUMID AIR INTO THE REGION...BUT THIS IS
EXPECTED TO BE A SLOW PROGRESSION. THUS...WE ANTICIPATE MORE
FAVORABLE MIXING CONDITIONS AND LOWER AFTERNOON
HUMIDITY...PARTICULARLY IN NORTHEASTERN SOUTH DAKOTA THIS AFTERNOON.

AS THE HIGH PRESSURE CONTINUES TO MOVE TO THE SOUTH AND
EAST...STRONGER SOUTHERLY WINDS ARE EXPECTED FOR THURSDAY AND
FRIDAY.  WE WILL SEE WARMING TEMPERATURES WITH SOMEWHAT HIGHER
HUMIDITY AS WE PROCEED THROUGH THE LATTER HALF OF THE WORK WEEK AS
WELL.

...LOW FIRE DANGER...

THE GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER INDEX WILL REACH THE LOW CATEGORY
THIS AFTERNOON. FAVORABLE WEATHER CONDITIONS OR A HIGH MOISTURE
CONTENT OF GRASSES...AND OTHER DRY ORGANIC MATERIAL ON THE
GROUND...INDICATE THAT THE PROBABILITY OF A FIRE OCCURRENCE IS
LOW. OUTDOOR BURNING UNDER THESE CONDITIONS CAN USUALLY BE
PERFORMED WITH REASONABLE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS.

THE OUTLOOK FOR THURSDAY AFTERNOON...THE GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER INDEX
WILL REACH THE LOW CATEGORY.
