Fire Weather Forecast For Central/NE South Dakota WC MN
National Weather Service Aberdeen SD
1258 PM CST Sun Nov 19 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Above normal temperatures will continue through Monday, on west to
southwesterly winds ahead of low pressure sliding across southern
Canada. Relative humidity values will fall to 20 to 30 percent
across most areas west of the James River Valley today and Monday,
as winds mainly stay at or below 15 mph. The wind will be strongest
Monday, pushing the grassland fire danger index to high and even
very high for most areas west of the James River Valley.

Much cooler air and gusty northwest winds will move in late Monday
night and Tuesday, behind a passing cold front. While Wednesday
could bring a slight chance of precipitation along the North Dakota
and South Dakota border, mostly dry weather is expected to continue
through Friday.
