RANGELAND FIRE DANGER STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
440 AM CDT MON OCT 27 2014

.DISCUSSION...
THE THREAT OF SHOWERS WILL MOVE ACROSS THE AREA TODAY FROM SOUTHWEST
TO NORTHEAST. AMOUNTS ARE GENERALLY EXPECTED TO BE LIGHT. WILL ALSO
BE A BREEZY DAY WITH NORTHWESTERLY WINDS GUSTING TO AROUND 30 MPH AT
TIMES. THE CLOUD COVER AND HIGHER HUMIDITY VALUES SHOULD GENERALLY KEEP
THE FIRE RISK AT MODERATE. ALTHOUGH PORTIONS OF SOUTH CENTRAL SOUTH
DAKOTA AND NORTHEAST NEBRASKA COULD EXPERIENCE SLIGHTLY HIGHER FIRE
DANGER. LOOKING AT COOLER AND GENERALLY DRY CONDITIONS FOR THE REMAINDER
OF THE WEEK. BLUSTERY NORTHWESTERLY WINDS ON TUESDAY WILL LIKELY LEAD TO
A HIGH FIRE DANGER DAY.
