Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
246 PM CDT Tue Oct 17 2017

...Warm and Dry Through Friday...

.DISCUSSION...

Wednesday will be abnormally warm and dry with occasional
southerly wind gusts to around 20 mph. Expect afternoon highs
in the upper 60s to mid 70s, but with dew point temperatures
near 50 degrees, minimum relative humidity will generally
be 40 percent or higher.

A dry cold front will sweep across the region late Wednesday
and Wednesday night, ushering in slightly cooler temperatures,
but lower dew points as well. As a result, minimum relative
humidity Thursday could drop to 25 percent in places, although
southerly winds will be lighter, generally 10 mph or less.

Friday will be another warm and breezy day with afternoon highs
back into the lower to mid 70s. Southerly winds will gust to
25 mph at times, but also increase moisture, keeping relative
humidity elevated.
