Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western
and North Central Nebraska
National Weather Service North Platte NE
248 PM CST Sat Feb 24 2018

.DISCUSSION...

Warming temperatures into next week will help melt off the snow
pack, at least a portions of it. The latest guidance suggests
highs in the 50s early next week with seasonal lows. Winds will
pick up across southwest Nebraska on Monday with some gusts to 25
mph in the afternoon. Radiational inversions will limit smoke
dispersal nightly, but with the warming, the inversions should
largely lift during morning or afternoon hours.
