Fire Weather Forecast For Central/NE South Dakota WC MN
National Weather Service Aberdeen SD
1258 PM CST Wed Dec 13 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Expect light rain over eastern South Dakota and western Minnesota
today. Precipitation should mix with and change over to light snow
by mid afternoon, as cooler air pushes into the listening area
behind strong low pressure exiting to our southeast. Windy
conditions will continue through mid afternoon, with gusts of 40 to
50 mph. Temperatures will be fairly steady today, in the 30s and
40s, as relative humidity values fall around or below 40 percent
southwest of a line from Mobridge to Miller.

Temperatures will remain above normal through the next several days,
with no widespread significant precipitation expected.
