Fire Weather Forecast For Central/NE South Dakota WC MN
National Weather Service Aberdeen SD
628 AM CDT Fri Oct 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Very warm and breezy conditions are expected this afternoon. Expect
south winds over 20 mph east of the Missouri River, with gusts of 30
to near 40 mph possible. The lowest relative humidity, in the upper
teens to around 30 percent, will again be west of the Missouri
River. Expect overnight relative humidity recovery west of the
Missouri River to be 50 to 70 percent as temperatures only fall into
the upper 40s to upper 50s. Low pressure moving across south central
Canada will drag a cold front across the area overnight tonight into
Saturday morning, which will not only bring a chance of light
showers, but additional breezy winds out of the west to northwest.
Sunday should be dry and mild, with breezy southwest winds in the
afternoon.
