FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
500 AM CDT THU OCT 30 2014

.DISCUSSION...
IN A REVERSAL OF FORTUNES...THE NEXT 7 DAYS WILL VERY LIKELY
FEATURE HIGH TEMPERATURES WHICH WILL BE NEAR OR BELOW NORMAL.
TODAY...THE GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER INDEX WILL REACH THE HIGH
CATEGORY THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE FORECAST AREA. THIS IS DUE TO
NORTH TO NORTHWEST WINDS AVERAGING 20 TO 35 MPH. BUT THE CHILLY
TEMPERATURES WILL KEEP MINIMUM HUMIDITY VALUES FAIRLY HIGH...
MOSTLY CLOSE TO 50 TO 60 PERCENT. THERE WILL BE MUCH LESS WIND
ON FRIDAY AS COLD HIGH PRESSURE MOVES ACROSS THE AREA. BUT ON
SATURDAY...A STRONG SOUTHERLY WIND AND FAIRLY LOW HUMIDITY
VALUES WILL BOOST THE GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER INDEX INTO THE VERY
HIGH CATEGORY FOR ALL AREAS...EXCEPT ALONG AND EAST OF HIGHWAY 60
IN NORTHWEST IOWA AND SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA. FOR THOSE LOCATIONS A
BIT LESS WIND SHOULD KEEP THE INDEX IN THE HIGH CATEGORY. WINDY
CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE EAST OF THE JAMES VALLEY ON SUNDAY...
BUT WITH HIGHER HUMIDITY. BREEZY OR WINDY NORTHWEST WINDS WILL
FOLLOW A WAVE PASSAGE ON MONDAY.
