Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Wyoming/Western Nebraska
National Weather Service Cheyenne WY
254 AM MDT Sat Oct 21 2017

HIGH WIND WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM THIS EVENING TO 6 PM MDT
SUNDAY

.DISCUSSION...
Min RH values will drop to between 15 and 20 percent east of the
Laramie Range this afternoon. Some elevated conditions are
possible as it will also be breezy to windy but overall, cooler
temperatures will prevent critical fire conditions from
developing. Dewpoints creep up a bit for Sunday into Monday so in
spite of the dry conditions, the fire weather threat after today
will be low.
