Rangeland Fire Danger Statement
National Weather Service Sioux Falls SD
405 AM CDT Wed Apr 26 2017


Cloudy and damp conditions will linger today as a storm system
moves away from the region slowly. By the afternoon, northwest
winds will begin to dry fuels, however temperatures will struggle
to reach 40 degrees. The fire danger risk will remain low for the near
future despite dry conditions arriving on Thursday and Friday. High
pressure bisecting the region will bring variable winds and
temperatures in the lower 50s on Thursday. Friday will again
feature cool conditions with a light northeasterly wind and highs
in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

Our next chance of rain arrives Saturday night through Sunday.
Temperatures may be cold enough to support snow in some areas.

The Grassland Fire Danger Index will reach the low category
this afternoon. Favorable weather conditions or a high moisture
content of grasses and other dry organic material on the
ground indicate that the probability of a fire occurrence is low.
Outdoor burning under these conditions can usually be performed
with reasonable safety precautions.

OUTLOOK FOR THURSDAY AFTERNOON...The Grassland Fire Danger Index
will reach the low category.
