Fire Weather Planning Forecast for SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE Nebraska
National Weather Service Sioux Falls SD
351 AM CDT Thu Apr 27 2017


.DISCUSSION...

Clouds are expected to linger well into the daytime hours of
Thursday. A breezy northerly wind will persist through the day, as
temperatures struggle again to climb through the 40s and into the
50s. Clouds will thin for Friday as winds turn to the northeast.
Temperatures will again climb into the 50s, but the overall fire
danger risk will be low. High pressure centered north of the area
will continue to produce a northeast to easterly wind on Saturday.
However cloud cover will be on the increase once again ahead of
rain moving into the area Saturday night.

Widespread rain, transitioning to snow, will be the story for
Sunday and Monday. Accumulating snows are possible with very
chilly conditions both days.
