FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN
AND NORTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORTH PLATTE NE
314 PM CDT WED APR 16 2014

.DISCUSSION...
ANOTHER COOL DAY FOR THURSDAY...THEN WARMER CONDITIONS EXPECTED
FOR FRIDAY WHICH CONTINUES INTO NEXT WEEK. MUCH OF THE AREA WILL
SEE HIGHS INTO THE 70S...HOWEVER A LITTLE BETTER MOISTURE SHOULD
RESULT IN MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES FROM 20 TO 35 PERCENT.
NOT MUCH IN THE WAY FOR WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION...HOWEVER A
COUPLE OF DISTURBANCES COULD PRODUCE SOME ISOLATED ACTIVITY
THROUGHOUT THE WEEK.
