.DISCUSSION...

A dry air mass will move into the region today as breezy northwest
winds develop. The lowest humidity will be across central South
Dakota where readings will fall into the teens and lower 20s this
afternoon. Although, the strongest gusts are expected across
northern South Dakota so that is where fire danger will be the
highest.

High pressure will be over the region on Sunday and bring lighter
northerly winds. Humidity will still be fairly low though across
central South Dakota, with readings in the 20s.

category this afternoon. Very poor weather conditions or a

organic material on the ground indicate that dangerous
burning conditions exist. Fires will spread rapidly and
show erratic behavior. Outdoor burning is not recommended.

The outlook for Sunday afternoon...The grassland fire danger index
will reach the low to moderate category.
