Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Wyoming/Western Nebraska
National Weather Service Cheyenne WY
604 PM MDT Tue Oct 17 2017

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON FOR THE SOUTHERN
LARAMIE RANGE AND ADJACENT PLAINS...

.DISCUSSION...Very dry conditions will continue on Wednesday, however
the strongest winds at low to mid levels will shift north. There
will likely be just enough wind at peak mixing for the S. Laramie
Range to hit critical conditions for a few hours Wednesday afternoon
so issued a Fire Weather Watch for zone 309. Elsewhere, elevated
conditions will occur across the rest of Southeast Wyoming
especially Carbon County where the fuel status is currently not
favorable.
