.DISCUSSION...

VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER IS EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON SOUTH OF
INTERSTATE 80 WHERE RELATIVE HUMIDITY WILL FALL TO AROUND 15
PERCENT. WEST WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO BE LIGHT...GUSTING TO JUST 20
MPH.

VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER IS EXPECTED SATURDAY ACROSS MUCH OF WESTERN
AND NORTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA. HUMIDITY BETWEEN 15 AND 20 PERCENT AND
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 TO 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.
