.DISCUSSION...

Temperatures will be around 20 degrees above normal for this time of
year, topping out in the mid 50s to low 60s. Relative humidity values
will fall to 20 to 30 percent. Combined with 10 to 15 mph winds out
of the west, the dry and warm conditions will result in elevated
grassland fire danger over portions of central South Dakota.

A strong cold front will drop south through the area this evening,
bringing gusty northwest winds, and knocking down temperatures.
Highs Tuesday will only be in the 20s to around 30 degrees. Breezy
conditions are expected, with winds out of the northwest gusting 25
to 35 mph, strongest over eastern South Dakota and western
Minnesota. The cold snap will be brief, with another warm up in
store for the second half of the work week.
