328 AM CDT Fri Oct 20 2017


.DISCUSSION...
Above normal temperatures and strong southerly winds will result
in an enhanced fire danger across the area for today, especially
over south central SD and the James River Valley. Even so,
afternoon RH values will remain in the range of 40 to 50 percent.
Rain chances will increase for late tonight and tomorrow. It will
be breezy again on Saturday, though winds will switch around from
the south to northwesterly with the passage of a frontal boundary.
