FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN
AND NORTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORTH PLATTE NE
302 PM CST FRI NOV 28 2014

.DISCUSSION...

VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER IS EXPECTED SATURDAY ACROSS MUCH OF WESTERN
AND NORTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA. HUMIDITY BETWEEN 15 AND 20 PERCENT AND
WEST WINDS GUSTING TO AROUND 25 MPH WILL MAKE FIRE MANAGEMENT VERY
CHALLENGING.

SHARPLY COLDER WEATHER DEVELOPS SATURDAY NIGHT AND LASTS THROUGH
THURSDAY. THIS WILL REDUCE FIRE DANGER TO LOW OR MODERATE LEVELS.

LITTLE SNOWFALL AND NO RAIN IS EXPECTED DURING THE NEXT 7 DAYS. IF
SNOW DEVELOPS IT WOULD MOST LIKELY OCCUR SUNDAY NIGHT ACROSS
WESTERN NEBRASKA.
