A BACK DOOR COLD FRONT WILL MOVE WEST ACROSS THE SOUTH DAKOTA
PLAINS TONIGHT...BUT IT IS UNLIKELY THAT IT WILL REACH THE FIRE
AREA...WHICH MEANS WINDS OVER EXPOSED AREAS WILL GENERALLY HAVE A
WESTERLY COMPONENT THROUGH THURSDAY. WIND GUSTS NEAR 30 MPH WILL
OCCUR THURSDAY AFTERNOON OVER EXPOSED RIDGETOPS. IF THE FRONT
MAKES IT TO THE FIRE AREA...RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL BE MUCH
HIGHER AND TEMPERATURES AND WINDS WILL BE LOWER THURSDAY.
