Fire Weather Forecast For Central/NE South Dakota WC MN
National Weather Service Aberdeen SD
643 AM CDT Thu Mar 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Strong south winds this morning will be replaced by a lighter breeze
and increasing low level humidity as low pressure develops to the
south. This will also result in increased clouds and shower
development. While generally not anticipating widespread heavy
rainfall, these conditions will at least help mitigate fire weather
conditions going into the weekend.
