FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
448 AM CDT SAT MAR 28 2015

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH SUNDAY AFTERNOON FROM THE JAMES RIVER
VALLEY EASTWARD INTO SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA AND NORTHWEST IOWA FOR
VERY STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS AND MODERATELY LOW HUMIDITY...

.DISCUSSION...
INCREASING SOUTH WINDS AND WARMING TEMPERATURES WILL LEAD TO A
VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER ALONG AND WEST OF THE JAMES RIVER VALLEY
THIS AFTERNOON. A STOUT COLD FRONT WILL PUSH INTO WESTERN PORTIONS
OF THE REGION EARLY SUNDAY MORNING...PRECEDED BY SOME LIGHT RAIN
SHOWERS TONIGHT. PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS GENERALLY LESS THAN 0.10
INCH WITH THIS RAINFALL...WHICH SHOULD PUSH EAST OF THE AREA BY
MID MORNING SUNDAY.

THE COLD FRONT AND LIGHT RAINFALL WILL BE FOLLOWED BY VERY STRONG
WINDS...ENTERING THE LOWER BRULE AND MIDDLE JAMES VALLEY BEFORE
DAWN...THEN SPREADING OVER THE REMAINDER OF THE REGION BY NOON.
WIND GUSTS OF 45-50 MPH ARE POSSIBLE WITH THE INITIAL POST-FRONTAL
SURGE OF WINDS SUNDAY MORNING. DESPITE THE EXPECTED LIGHT
RAINFALL...THESE WINDS AND INCREASING SUNSHINE SHOULD DRY OUT FINE
FUELS BY SUNDAY AFTERNOON. WIND SPEEDS ARE EXPECTED TO DIMINISH
SLIGHTLY DURING THE AFTERNOON...THOUGH STILL ANTICIPATE SPEEDS OF
25-35 MPH WITH HIGHER GUSTS ALONG AND EAST OF THE JAMES RIVER
VALLEY THROUGH LATE AFTERNOON. HUMIDITY LEVELS WILL DROP TO AROUND
25 PERCENT IN THE JAMES RIVER VALLEY...WITH HIGHER READINGS AROUND
35 PERCENT ACROSS SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA. CONDITIONS CERTAINLY FAR
FROM IDEAL...AND POTENTIAL FOR EXTREME FIRE BEHAVIOR DEPENDENT ON
ABILITY TO RECOVER FROM OVERNIGHT RAINFALL. THUS STICKING WITH
JUST A FIRE WEATHER WATCH FOR NOW...BUT DID OPT TO EXPAND INTO
SOUTHEAST SOUTH DAKOTA AND NORTHWEST IOWA WE EXPECT LESS OVERNIGHT
RAINFALL AND LOWER AFTERNOON HUMIDITY LEVELS IN THESE AREAS.

COULD AGAIN SEE VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON...WITH
STRONG WESTERLY WINDS DEVELOPING IN POST-FRONTAL ENVIRONMENT.
CURRENT TIMING OF THE COLD FRONT WOULD FOCUS THIS THREAT IN
SOUTHEAST SOUTH DAKOTA AND SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA...THOUGH NORTHWEST
IOWA COULD ALSO SEE A FEW HOURS OF VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER WITH
GUSTY SOUTHWEST WINDS AHEAD OF THE FRONT IN THE EARLY AFTERNOON.
