FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN
AND NORTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORTH PLATTE NE
425 AM CDT TUE JUL 8 2014

.DISCUSSION...

AS TEMPERATURES GO ON THE INCREASE THIS WEEK...DEWPOINTS WILL ALSO
INCREASE. A LACK OF DRY AIR AND DRY FUELS WILL KEEP FIRE WEATHER
DANGER LOW THIS WEEK. THE WEATHER PATTERN WILL BE IN NORTHWEST FLOW
WHICH LEADS TO DIFFICULTY IN TIMING OF PRECIPITATION CHANCES.
ALTHOUGH THERE ARE CHANCES THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK...AT THIS TIME
RAINFALL ACROSS THE DISTRICTS WILL BE SCATTERED AT BEST.
