.DISCUSSION...

FIRE DANGER WILL BE NEAR CRITICAL ON THURSDAY. DRY AIR WILL BE IN
PLACE OVER THE DISTRICTS...WITH RELATIVE HUMIDITY EXPECTED TO DROP
DOWN NEAR 15 PERCENT. WINDS MAY BE A LIMITING FACTOR ON HOW
EXTREME THE FIRE DANGER GETS. AT THIS TIME...THERE IS POTENTIAL
FOR FREQUENT WINDS TO 25 MPH...HOWEVER CONFIDENCE ON THIS ISN/T
HIGH. FRIDAY WILL BE A WARM AND DRY DAY...BUT LIGHT WINDS ARE
FORECAST. THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR A LARGE SYSTEM TO MOVE ACROSS THE
CENTRAL PLAINS THIS WEEKEND TO BRING CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION. AT
THIS TIME THERE IS CONSIDERABLE UNCERTAINTY ON WHERE AND HOW MUCH
WILL OCCUR.
