.DISCUSSION...

Low pressure from northwest Canada will slowly sink across the
eastern Dakotas and Minnesota through Saturday morning. While some

eastern South Dakota and western Minnesota, little to no
precipitation is expected. Today will be another warm day, with
temperatures 10 to near 20 degrees above normal. Relative humidity
values will fall into the 30 percent range west of the Missouri
River, but west to southwest winds should stay around or less than 15
mph. Above normal temperatures and relatively light winds should
linger through the weekend.

potential for a fire occurrence. Outdoor burning should be
restricted to early morning or evening hours when wind speeds
are usually lower and the relative humidity is higher.

The outlook for Saturday afternoon...The grassland fire danger index
will reach the low to moderate category.
