Fire Weather Planning Forecast for SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE Nebraska
National Weather Service Sioux Falls SD
231 AM CDT Wed Oct 18 2017


.DISCUSSION...

Continued warm and dry conditions are expected today. A frontal
boundary will slide across the region by mid-day, turning winds to
the west to northwest through the afternoon. Dew points will
lower behind this front, and will drop humidity values into the 20
to 30 percent range west of the James River. Winds turn back to
the south on Thursday and again turn breezy. While RH values will
slowly increase through the day, another very warm, dry and breezy
day could lead to heightened fire danger risks west of the James
River.

Very windy conditions are expected on Friday, with temperatures
again soaring into the 70s. Dew points will be on the increase,
but wind gusts up to 40 mph or greater will lead to a heightened
fire danger risk in areas west of Interstate 29.

A frontal boundary will bring a chance for rain to the area
Friday night and Saturday. Rain amounts will be on the light side,
with the greatest chance for rain across portions of southern
Minnesota and adjacent areas of Iowa.
