.DISCUSSION...
STRONG SOUTHERLY WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP BY MIDDAY AND
CONTINUE INTO THE EVENING HOURS. THE VERY DRY AIRMASS WILL LEND TO
LOW AFTERNOON HUMIDITY...AS LOW AS 25 TO 30 PERCENT...WHICH WILL
COMBINE WITH DORMANT VEGETATION TO PRODUCE A VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER
FROM THE JAMES VALLEY WESTWARD. AS WE HEAD INTO THE NIGHT...THE
CORRIDOR OF STRONGER WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD EASTWARD...WITH
WINDS REMAINING STRONGER AT EXPOSED HIGHER ELEVATION LOCATIONS
ESPECIALLY IN NORTHWEST IOWA AND SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA.

LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE ACROSS THE HEART OF THE AREA ON WEDNESDAY...
WITH WINDS SHIFTING TOWARD A BLUSTERY NORTHERLY...AND TEMPERATURES
FALLING BEFORE LEVELING OFF OR SLIGHTLY RISING LATER IN THE DAY.
AREAS ALONG AND NORTH OF INTERSTATE 90 CAN EXPECT SOME FAIRLY
WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION...SOME OF WHICH WILL BE ACCUMULATING
SNOWFALL TOWARD THE HIGHWAY 14 CORRIDOR...GENERALLY LESS THAN AN
INCH.

THURSDAY WILL BE ANOTHER VERY COOL DAY...WITH LESS WIND AND HIGHER
AFTERNOON HUMIDITY. A WARMING TREND WILL COMMENCE ON FRIDAY...
INTERRUPTED BY A CHANCE FOR MORE RAINFALL ON SATURDAY ACROSS THE
AREA.
