Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Wyoming/Western Nebraska
National Weather Service Cheyenne WY
214 AM MDT Thu Oct 19 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Warm and dry weather will continue over the districts today through
Friday before turning much cooler Saturday. Some gusty winds will
occur this afternoon over western and northern districts with
critical conditions expected over northern areas due to drier
fuels. A little higher humidity may ease fire weather concerns
some on Friday. The weekend into early next week looks mild but
there will be windy periods.
