FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR E ND...NW AND WC MN
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND FORKS ND
516 AM CDT MON AUG 22 2016

...OBSERVED HAINES INDICES WERE 6 (HIGH) AT INTERNATIONAL FALLS,
BISMARCK AND ABERDEEN...

.DISCUSSION...

LOOK FOR TEMPERATURES TO WARM MONDAY AND TUESDAY BUT RELATIVE
HUMIDITY VALUES WILL NOT GET THAT LOW DUE TO SOME INCREASE IN LOW
LEVEL MOISTURE THROUGH THE PERIOD. LOOK FOR A SOUTH WIND TODAY
INTO TUESDAY AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT WHICH WILL MOVE INTO THE DEVILS
LAKE BASIN EARLY IN THE AFTERNOON AND REACH THE RED RIVER VALLEY
LATE AFTERNOON AND THEN CONTINUE MOVING EAST THROUGH NORTHWESTERN
AND WEST CENTRAL MINNESOTA TUESDAY EVENING. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS
ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ALONG THE FRONT IN THE RED RIVER VALLEY
AND THEN INCREASE IN COVERAGE IN THE EVENING AS IT MOVES EAST.
WIDESPREAD HEAVY RAINS ARE NOT ANTICIPATED DUE TO THE FAST
MOVEMENT OF THE FRONT AND UNCERTAINTY IN THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE.

THE REST OF THE WEEK WILL FEATURE TEMPERATURES NEAR NORMAL FOR
LATE AUGUST.
