Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western
and North Central Nebraska
National Weather Service North Platte NE
425 AM CDT Wed Jul 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A ridge of high pressure will build across the plains late this
week, but temperatures will be seasonal or slightly below average.
The cooler temperatures will promote higher relative humidity with
most locations remaining above 25% through the weekend. The
exception possibly being zone 204 where the storms overnight
largely missed. Northerly winds will be breezy today, but should
remain less than 25 mph. Outside of any thunderstorms, no large
scale wind events are expected through the weekend. The next shot
at measurable rainfall comes Friday evening, but those chances
are largely tied to the panhandle and western Sandhills.
