.DISCUSSION...

An area of low pressure will exit to our southeast this morning, as
a ridge of high pressure builds in from Montana. While there could
be a mix of rain or snow over western and south central South Dakota
tonight as an upper level disturbance nears, dry weather should
persist through early next week. Above normal temperatures will also
continue, along with relatively light winds. Relative humidity
values today should stay above 50 percent today, under a mostly
cloudy sky.

...MODERATE FIRE DANGER...

category this afternoon. Marginal weather conditions or a
lowering moisture content of grasses and other dry organic
material on the ground indicate that there is some potential
for a fire occurrence. Do not leave outdoor fires unattended
under these conditions.

The outlook for Sunday afternoon...The grassland fire danger index
will reach the low to moderate category.
