Fire Weather Forecast For Central/NE South Dakota WC MN
National Weather Service Aberdeen SD
928 PM CST Wed Nov 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...

An area of low pressure crossing the region today will bring
southerly winds to eastern South Dakota and western Minnesota, but
this will shift to westerly behind the low. Winds will become light
overnight.

Temperatures will be quite mild Thursday with highs some 15 to 30
degrees above average for late November. Expect a light breeze
mainly from the Southwest.

Very windy conditions are expected for Friday with a wind shift to
the northwest. While this is expected to bring slightly cooler air
into the region compared to the temperatures observed on Thursday,
readings will still be in the 50s.
