FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
412 PM CDT FRI MAR 27 2015

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON FOR SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA
FOR VERY STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS AND MODERATELY LOW HUMIDITY...

.DISCUSSION...
VERY STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS ARE THE ROOT CAUSE OF EXPECTED VERY
HIGH TO EXTREME FIRE DANGER ON SUNDAY. SHOULD HAVE PLENTY OF TIME
TO RECOVER FROM ANY LIGHT PRECIPITATION LATER TODAY...AND
ADDITIONAL LIGHT RAINFALL THREAT SATURDAY NIGHT...BUT IT WOULD BE
THIS LATTER LIGHT RAINFALL WHICH COULD KEEP PARTS OF SW MN FROM
ATTAINING THE POTENTIAL CRITICAL BEHAVIOR. SEEMS UNLIKELY AT THIS
POINT...BUT THE SATURDAY NIGHT RAINFALL THREAT WILL NEED TO BE
WATCHED...SO THUS THE FIRE WEATHER WATCH AND NOT A RED FLAG WARNING
AT THIS TIME. AT THIS TIME...HUMIDITIES REMAIN LOCKED IN AT AROUND 20
PERCENT IN LOWER BRULE AREAS...BUT IN THE LOWER TO MID 30S FROM
INTERSTATE 29 EASTWARD. WITH WINDS GUSTING TO 45 MPH AT TIMES
EAST OF INTERSTATE 29 WENT AHEAD WITH A WATCH IN SOUTHWEST
MINNESOTA EVEN THOUGH AFTERNOON RELATIVE HUMIDITY IS AROUND 35
PERCENT. WEST OF INTERSTATE 29 THE HUMIDITY IS LOWER...BUT WINDS
MAY DECREASE DURING THE AFTERNOON...ESPECIALLY APPROACHING CENTRAL
SOUTH DAKOTA. NO WATCH IN NORTHWEST IOWA OR SOUTHEAST SOUTH DAKOTA
YET...BUT THESE AREAS WILL NEED TO BE WATCHED...AND WOULD NOT BE
SURPRISED IF A WATCH OR WARNING IS ALSO ISSUED FOR AREAS ALONG AND
EAST OF THE JAMES RIVER VALLEY IF THESE TRENDS CONTINUE.

WILL ALSO HAVE TO WATCH THE POST FRONTAL ENVIRONMENT ON WEDNESDAY
FOR AT LEAST A VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER...WITH STRONG WESTERLY WINDS
ALONG WITH LOWER HUMIDITY.
