Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Wyoming/Western Nebraska
National Weather Service Cheyenne WY
232 PM MDT Mon Oct 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A weak upper level ridge is expected to build over the area during
the next couple of days. This will result in diminishing wind
speeds tonight, but deep mixing will prevail on Tuesday and
result in more gusty northwest winds. Although, the wind speeds on
Tuesday should be lighter than this afternoon. Wind speeds are
expected to increase again on Tuesday night into Wednesday as a
upper level disturbance moves into the northern Rockies. Afternoon
relative humidity values are also expected to drop off to 10 to 15
percent on Wednesday ahead of that strong disturbance, and will
most likely result in elevated-critical fire weather conditions.
