FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
549 AM CDT THU APR 17 2014

...MUCH WARMER CONDITIONS STARTING FRIDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
WEAK HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING LESS WINDS AND MIXING TODAY...WITH
COOL TEMPERATURES AND SOMEWHAT HIGHER HUMIDITY LEVELS. WITH MOIST
GROUND AND MELTING OF SNOWFALL NORTH OF INTERSTATE 90...FIRE
DANGER WILL REMAIN LOW TODAY...AND MODERATE TOWARD THE MISSOURI
RIVER CORRIDOR WHERE PRECIPITATION WAS MEAGER ON WEDNESDAY.
SOUTHERLY RETURN FLOW WILL START TO DEVELOP TONIGHT...WITH WINDS
BECOMING QUITE STRONG ON FRIDAY INTO FRIDAY NIGHT. AS A RESULT...
FIRE DANGER WILL BECOME VERY HIGH ACROSS MOST OF SOUTHEAST SOUTH
DAKOTA AND EXTREME NORTHEAST NEBRASKA. THE SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL
NOT DROP A WHOLE LOT ON FRIDAY NIGHT...AND IN FACT WILL REMAIN
QUITE STRONG AT ELEVATION.

A FRONTAL ZONE ON SATURDAY INTO EARLY SUNDAY IS LIKELY TO BRING A
FEW APRIL SHOWERS...WITH MORE WIDESPREAD RAINS AND PERHAPS SOME
RUMBLES OF THUNDER TO THE SOUTHEASTERN HALF OF THE AREA. FOLLOWING
THIS BOUNDARY...A VERY WARM PERIOD WILL SET IN THROUGH AT LEAST
THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. AS TEMPERATURES WARM MORE TOWARD MID
WEEK...THERE WILL BE POTENTIAL FOR PERIODS OF ENHANCED FIRE
DANGER ACROSS THE AREA.
