Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western
and North Central Nebraska
National Weather Service North Platte NE
258 PM CDT Mon Oct 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Winds on Tuesday do not look as strong as today, but still gusty
nonetheless. Gusts in the 25-35 mph range appear likely and when
combined with relative humidity of 20-30%, any range fire start
would be difficult to control. Temperatures trend slightly cooler
for Tuesday with high mainly in the 50s. Wednesday however, full
sunshine will combine with westerly downsloping winds to promote
well above average highs. Wednesday will be the driest day of the
week with some wind, fire weather headlines may be needed. A
strong cold front is expected Wednesday evening with strong winds
and cooler temperatures anticipated to round out the work week.
