Fire Weather Forecast For Central/NE South Dakota WC MN
National Weather Service Aberdeen SD
529 PM CST Sun Dec 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A surge of mild air will increase temperatures over the area on
Monday. Winds will also become breezy from the west as the air
becomes drier, elevating fire danger. Relative humidity is forecast
to fall into the 30 percent range across south central South Dakota,
while above 40 percent elsewhere.

Winds will shift to the northwest behind a dry cold front that will
move though the region Monday evening. Expect brief gusty winds
behind the front before they diminish through the night as high
pressure moves overhead.  Tuesday and Wednesday will continue the
stretch of above normal temperatures, but expect a rapid cool down
behind a system moving through the area late Wednesday and Thursday.
 This system will bring the potential for light snow and gusty winds
before temperatures fall into the teens for the end of the work
week.
