Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Wyoming/Western Nebraska
National Weather Service Cheyenne WY
209 AM MST Mon Nov 20 2017

...HIGH WIND WARNING IN EFFECT THROUGH MID EVENING...
...ELEVATED TO CRITICAL FIRE WETHER CONDIONS FWZ 310 AND 313 TODAY...

.DISCUSSION...
Elevated to locally critical fire weather conditions across the
southern Nebraska Panhandle and extreme southeast Wyoming today
(FWZ 310 and 313). Low pressure system tracking across Montana
today will increase winds over the area with many High WInd
Warnings in effect across southeast Wyoming. Downsloping winds off
the Laramie Range will create locally critical humidity across
southern 310 and 313 along with wind gusts exceeding 35 mph. Look
for increasing chances for some precipitation when the associated
cold front moves through tonight into Tuesday.
