FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
518 AM CDT SUN MAR 29 2015

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 1 PM TO 7 PM CDT TODAY FOR
VERY STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY FOR LOWER BRULE...
JAMES VALLEY...AND MISSOURI VALLEY AREAS INTO ADJACENT PORTIONS OF
NORTHWEST IOWA...

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY
EVENING FOR EAST CENTRAL SOUTH DAKOTA...SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA...AND
NORTHERN AND EASTERN PORTIONS OF NORTHWEST IOWA FOR VERY STRONG
NORTHWEST WINDS AND MODERATELY LOW HUMIDITY...

.DISCUSSION...
ISSUED AT 433 AM CDT SUN MAR 29 2015

NOT QUITE AS STRAIGHTFORWARD ISSUES WITH FIRE WEATHER TODAY. SOME
OF THE STRONGEST WINDS MAY ACTUALLY OCCUR DURING THE LATER MORNING
AS AREA OF LOWER CLOUDS MOVES THROUGH...AND HUMIDITY LIKELY TO GET
A BIT OF A BOOST WITH SECONDARY AREA OF VERY LIGHT RAIN SLIDING
THROUGH EAST CENTRAL SOUTH DAKOTA AND SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA MID TO
LATE MORNING. ANY CLOUDS AND PRECIP WILL COME TO A QUICK DEMISE BY
LATE MORNING...LEAVING SUN AND WIND TO WORK ON THE REST OF THE
DAY.

DECIDED TO GO WITH THE RED FLAG WARNING IN THOSE AREAS WHERE
LOWEST HUMIDITY GETS CLOSE TO OR EXCEEDS 20/25 PERCENT
CRITERIA...WITH STRONG WINDS THE DECIDING FACTOR ON PUSHING
MARGINAL CONDITIONS... DESPITE THE FACT THAT LOWEST HUMIDITY AND
STRONGEST WINDS WILL BE SOMEWHAT OFF TIMED IN THE LOWER BRULE
AREAS. ELSEWHERE...AFTER COORDINATION CALL HAVE MAINTAINED FIRE
WEATHER WATCH FOR EAST CENTRAL SOUTH DAKOTA...SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA
AND IOWA GREAT LAKES AREA IN NORTHWEST IOWA. LOWEST HUMIDITY IS
MUCH MORE HIGHLY IN QUESTION IN THESE AREAS...CURRENTLY EXPECTED
TO REMAIN 30 TO 38 PERCENT. ALSO HAVE WILD CARD OF MORNING
RAINFALL MOVING THROUGH THE NORTHERN AND EASTERN FIRE WEATHER
ZONES. ALBEIT EXPECTATIONS OF VERY LIGHT PRECIPITATION...SHOULD BE
SUFFICIENT WITH WIND AND SUBSIDENCE TO ALTER FINE FUELS FAST
ENOUGH TO MATTER. EXTREME FIRE DANGER TODAY FOR ALL AREAS.

WESTERLY FLOW ON MONDAY SHOULD FAVOR STRONG MIXING...RESULTING IN
AFTERNOON WIND GUSTS TO AROUND 25 MPH OR SLIGHTLY HIGHER...ALONG
WITH MINIMUM HUMIDITY LEVELS FROM 20 TO 25 PERCENT OVER MUCH OF THE
THE AREA. FIRE DANGER WILL BE VERY HIGH THROUGHOUT THE AREA...BUT
COULD APPROACH EXTREME IF WINDS BECOME SLIGHTLY STRONGER THAN
FORECAST.

STRONG PRE- AND POST-FRONTAL WINDS ON WEDNESDAY WILL LEAD TO VERY
HIGH FIRE DANGER AT SOME POINT DURING THE DAY FOR ALL LOCATIONS.
HOWEVER THE FIRE DANGER SHOULD DECREASE ACROSS NORTHWEST IOWA
DURING THE AFTERNOON AS THE FRONT MOVES IN...BRINGING A DECREASE
IN WINDS AND INCREASE IN PRECIP THREAT. DEEP NORTHWEST FLOW
WILL DOMINATE ACROSS THE AREA THURSDAY...WHICH SHOULD AGAIN BE
FAVORABLE FOR MIXING DOWN SOME HIGHER WIND GUSTS AND LOWER DEW
POINTS IN THE AFTERNOON. THIS WILL LEAD TO ANOTHER DAY OF VERY
HIGH FIRE DANGER FOR MOST AREAS.
