FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
524 AM CDT FRI MAR 27 2015

...VERY HIGH TO EXTREME FIRE DANGER RETURNS ON SUNDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
LIGHT PRECIPITATION WILL GRACE THE AREA LATER TODAY AND ESPECIALLY
DURING THE EVENING. AREAS EAST OF INTERSTATE 29 COULD FIND AROUND
A HALF INCH OF LIGHT SNOWFALL. AS A RESULT...FIRE DANGER WILL
REMAIN MODERATE AT BEST ON SATURDAY FROM INTERSTATE 29 EASTWARD
DESPITE AN INCREASE IN SOUTHERLY WINDS. HOWEVER...WESTERN AREAS
WILL FIND STRONG SOUTH WINDS BRINGING A RETURN TO VERY HIGH FIRE
DANGER WEST OF THE JAMES RIVER ON SATURDAY.

VERY STRONG AND GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS OF 25 TO 45 MPH WILL DEVELOP
BEHIND A FRONTAL ZONE ON SUNDAY. STRONGEST WINDS ARE EXPECTED
ACROSS SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA TOWARD THE IOWA GREAT LAKES AREA...
WHERE CONDITIONS MAY BECOME CRITICAL DURING THE AFTERNOON. THESE
AREAS WILL HAVE TO DRY OUT FROM MELTING OF ANY LIGHT SNOWFALL
WHICH OCCURS LATER TODAY...AS WELL AS ANY LIGHT RAINFALL WHICH
OCCURS SATURDAY NIGHT. THIS WILL BE ONE LIMITING FACTOR ON ANY
POTENTIAL EXTREME CONDITIONS. ANOTHER MAY BE LOWEST AFTERNOON
HUMIDITY...WHICH IS FORECAST AROUND 20 PERCENT IN LOWER BRULE
AREAS...WITH LOWER TO MID 30 PERCENT FROM INTERSTATE 29 EASTWARD.
THESE FACTORS WILL BE EVALUATED TODAY TO DETERMINE IF ANY FIRE
WEATHER HEADLINES WILL BE NEEDED FOR SUNDAY.

ANOTHER DAY OF ENHANCED FIRE WEATHER CONCERN IS WEDNESDAY. ANOTHER
STRONG FRONTAL ZONE WILL BE FOLLOWED BY STRENGTHENING WESTERLY
WIND...COMBINING WITH VERY LOW AFTERNOON HUMIDITY.
