Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western and Central North Dakota
National Weather Service Bismarck ND
213 PM CDT Tue Oct 17 2017

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH FOR NORTHERN AND MOST OF CENTRAL NORTH
DAKOTA WEDNESDAY FOR STRONG WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY...

.DISCUSSION...

For northern and much of central North Dakota, strong west to
northwest winds are forecast on Wednesday behind a cold front.
Sustained winds around 30 mph with gusts to 45 mph are forecast.
Afternoon relative humidity will fall to near 20 percent. While
high temperatures will only be in the 50s, dry and windy
conditions may lead to critical fire weather conditions across
northern and much of central North Dakota. Across southwest North
Dakota, winds will be weaker on Wednesday, sustained around 20 mph
with gusts to 30 mph.

Warm conditions are forecast again on Thursday and Friday with
highs of 70 to 80. However, winds are not expected to be strong
either day. A windy Saturday is possible behind a cold front,
however, there is some uncertainty if relative humidity will
reach critical levels.
