Rangeland Fire Danger Statement
National Weather Service Aberdeen SD
337 AM CST Sun Nov 19 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Above normal temperatures will continue through Monday, on west to
southwesterly winds ahead of low pressure sliding across southern
Canada. Relative humidity values will fall to 20 to 30 percent
across most areas west of the James River Valley today and Monday,
as winds mainly stay at or below 15 mph. The wind will be strongest
and temperatures will be warmest Monday, pushing the grassland fire
danger index to high and even very high for most areas west of the
James River Valley.

Much cooler air and gusty northwest winds will move in late Monday
night and Tuesday, behind a passing cold front. While Wednesday
could bring a slight chance of precipitation along the North Dakota
and South Dakota border, mostly dry weather is expected to continue
through Friday.
