FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
403 PM CDT THU MAR 26 2015

...VERY HIGH TO EXTREME FIRE DANGER RETURNING ON SUNDAY...

COOL WEATHER WILL CONTINUE INTO FRIDAY. A BAND OF LIGHT RAIN OR
SNOW WILL MOVE FROM WEST TO EAST ACROSS THIS FORECAST AREA
DURING THE DAY ON FRIDAY AND FRIDAY EVENING. HOWEVER MOST
LIQUID AMOUNTS WILL LIKELY REMAIN BELOW A TENTH OF AN INCH. SO
NOT A LOT OF DECENT WETTING PRECIPITATION.

WARMER AND WINDIER CONDITIONS WILL THEN SETUP FOR THIS WEEKEND.
A BRISK SOUTHERLY FLOW OF 20 TO 30 MPH WILL PREVAIL ON SATURDAY.
BUT THE DAY OF BIG CONCERN IS SUNDAY...WHERE NORTHWEST WINDS
WILL AVERAGE 25 TO 40 MPH...WITH SOME GUSTS EVEN UP TO 45 MPH
IN SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA AND INTO THE IOWA GREAT LAKES REGION.
MINIMUM HUMIDITY VALUES ARE PROJECTED TO FALL TO AROUND 20
PERCENT IN SOUTH CENTRAL SOUTH DAKOTA...TO AROUND 35 PERCENT
IN SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA AND THE IOWA GREAT LAKES REGION. ONE
THING TO WATCH IS A QUICK MOVING SHORT WAVE MOVING ACROSS
SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA SUNDAY MORNING. THIS WAVE COULD PRODUCE A
BIT OF LIGHT RAIN...BUT IT MAY NOT BE ENOUGH RAIN TO ELIMINATE
EXTREME FIRE DANGER ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON. THIS WILL BE FURTHER
EVALUATED ON FRIDAY FOR ANY POTENTIAL FOR FIRE HEADLINES IN
SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA AND THE IOWA GREAT LAKES REGION.
