Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
355 AM CDT Sat Apr 22 2017

...Low Relative Humidity This Afternoon and Sunday Afternoon. Windy Conditions
Expected Monday...

.DISCUSSION... High pressure will provide dry weather and lighter
winds today. A dry airmass over the region combined with deep
mixing will result in relative humidity values falling into the
teens to lower 20s this afternoon. The lowest values will be
across central Wisconsin. Winds will increase slightly on Sunday
and we will see another dry day with relative humidity values
falling into the lower 20s to lower 30s.

Windy conditions are expected on Monday and there could be
elevated fire weather concerns across portions of western into
central Wisconsin where relative humidity values will be slower to
recover from the dry air over the region. At this time, minimum
relative humidity values are expected to fall into the upper 20s
to lower 30s along and east of the Mississippi River into central
Wisconsin. Plan on south winds approaching 15 to 20 mph with gusts
of 30 to 35 mph. Increasing cloud cover across the region on
Monday could limit the amount of mixing and this may lead to
slightly less wind and slightly higher relative humidity values.
Continue to monitor forecasts closely.
