Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Wyoming/Western Nebraska
National Weather Service Cheyenne WY
306 AM MDT Mon Oct 23 2017

HIGH WIND WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 AM MDT EARLY THIS
MORNING

.DISCUSSION...

Elevated fire weather conditions will develop over the Nebraska
Panhandle this afternoon. RH values will fall to around 20 percent
and NW winds of 25 to 35 mph with higher gusts are expected.
Cooler temperatures will keep RH values from falling into the
critical range. It will continue to be dry with a warming trend
through Wednesday. Elevated to locally critical fire weather
conditions are possible on Wednesday east of the Laramie Range as
stronger westerly winds overlap areas with RH values between 15
and 20 percent.
