NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORTH PLATTE NE
446 AM CDT FRI SEP 4 2015

.DISCUSSION...

THE PRESENCE OF LIGHT SOUTHWEST WINDS ACROSS THE WEST TODAY TO
BRING LOWEST DEWPOINTS FROM THE UPPER 40S TO LOWER 50S ACROSS THE
WEST AND GIVING MINIMUM RH VALUES OF 20 TO 25 PERCENT NEAR AND
WEST OF HWY 83.

A COLD FRONT IS EXPECTED TO PASS THROUGH THE AREA SUNDAY.
ALTHOUGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE SOMEWHAT COOLER BEHIND THE
FRONT...MUCH DRIER AIR IS ALSO EXPECTED BEHIND THE FRONT. THIS
WILL CAUSE RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES TO DROP INTO THE 15 TO 20
PERCENT RANGE ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTHWEST NEBRASKA AND INTO THE
WESTERN SANDHILLS. WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO BE IN THE 15 TO 20 MPH
RANGE AS WELL...WITH HIGHER GUSTS POSSIBLE. THEREFORE A HIGH FIRE
DANGER IS EXPECTED BY SUNDAY AFTERNOON.

MAINLY A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS TONIGHT INTO SATURDAY
AND SATURDAY NIGHT.
