Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Indiana
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
348 AM EDT Mon Apr 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Boundary layer will be well mixed again today, and expect a slight
increase in dewpoints depicted in model guidance to be offset by
this mixing. Surface relative humidity values will likely drop
below 30 percent for at least a few hours from midday through the
mid afternoon, with minimum values pushing critical 25 percent
thresholds.

10 hour fuel moisture values have dropped significantly in latest
analysis, and are now 7-8% over much of central and western
Indiana, and just above these critical values over eastern
Indiana.

The good news is that 20 foot sustained wind speeds will likely
remain below 15 MPH today, thus preventing Red Flag conditions.
However, between the dry conditions and low fuel moistures,
coupled with some gustiness to the winds, fire danger cannot
be entirely ignored today.
