FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR E ND...NW AND WC MN
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND FORKS ND
320 PM CDT SAT APR 19 2014

.DISCUSSION...
AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IS TRACKING RAPIDLY ACROSS THE
CANADIAN BORDER...BRINGING GUSTY WEST WINDS OF 20 TO 30 MPH ALONG
WITH IT AND EXCELLENT VENT RATES. AS THE LOW PUSHES EAST THIS
EVENING...HIGH PRESSURE AND SLIGHTLY COOLER AIR WILL MOVE
IN...BRINGING LOW TEMPERATURE OVERNIGHT DOWN NEAR FREEZING. EXPECT
AN INVERSION TO SET UP AFTER SUNSET TO DECOUPLE WINDS WITH POOR TO
FAIR VENT RATES. AS HIGH PRESSURE PUSHES IN FOR SUNDAY...EXPECT
TEMPERATURES TO REACH THE UPPER 60S AND LOW 70S. COMBINED WITH
SLIGHTLY DRIER AIR BEHIND THE SYSTEM...THIS WILL BRING MINIMUM
HUMIDITIES DOWN INTO THE 30 TO 40 PERCENT RANGE. WINDS WILL
SLACKEN IN THE WEAKER PRESSURE GRADIENT...BUT MAY STILL SEE 10 TO
20 MPH WINDS IN SOME AREAS ALONG WITH GOOD VENT RATES.
OTHERWISE...LITTLE PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT FEW
DAYS.
