Fire Weather Planning Forecast for SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE Nebraska
National Weather Service Sioux Falls SD
352 AM CDT Thu Aug 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Low pressure which brought widespread rainfall amounts of 1 to 3
inches to much of the region on Wednesday will move east into
Wisconsin today, allowing high pressure to bring drier conditions
with increasing sunshine from west to east. Gusty northwest winds
will be prevalent east of the James River Valley this morning, but
should diminish throughout much of southeast South Dakota through
the afternoon, as the high pressure builds eastward.

A fairly unsettled pattern will bring a chance of thunderstorms
back to the region later tonight and Friday, and again toward the
end of the upcoming weekend.
