Fire Weather Forecast For Central/NE South Dakota WC MN
National Weather Service Aberdeen SD
613 AM CDT Sat Jul 22 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM THIS MORNING TO 7 PM MDT
THIS EVENING FOR STRONG WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY...

.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.
