FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR E ND...NW AND WC MN
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND FORKS ND
356 AM CDT THU APR 24 2014

.DISCUSSION...

THE PRIMARY FOCUS FOR SHOWERS TODAY WILL BE ACROSS NORTHWESTERN
MINNESOTA...WITH MORE SCATTERED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS
POSSIBLE FARTHER WEST INTO EASTERN NORTH DAKOTA THIS AFTERNOON.
PERSISTENT CLOUD COVER AND PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO RESULT IN
RH VALUES ELEVATED ABOVE 60 PERCENT ACROSS NORTHWESTERN MINNESOTA
TODAY. INCREASING WESTERLY WINDS WILL HELP BRING DRIER AIR INTO
THE DEVILS LAKE BASIN SOUTHWARD INTO THE SOUTHERN VALLEY...WHERE
RH MAY FALL TO AS LOW AS AROUND 30 PERCENT IN SOME SPOTS WHERE
THERE IS MORE SURFACE HEATING. WINDS WILL BE LIGHTER ACROSS MUCH OF
NORTHWESTERN MINNESOTA.

PRECIPITATION CHANCES WILL LESSEN BY FRIDAY WITH WINDS BECOMING
NORTHERLY...BUT GENERALLY AROUND 10 MPH OR LESS. MINIMUM RH WILL
RANGE FROM 30 TO 40 PERCENT OVER SOUTHEAST NORTH DAKOTA TO ABOVE
50 PERCENT TO THE NORTH AND EAST.

ANOTHER PERIOD OF UNSETTLED WEATHER IS EXPECTED LATE IN THE
WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK...WITH WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION
FORECAST OVER MUCH OF THE REGION.
