Rangeland Fire Danger Statement
National Weather Service Aberdeen SD

.DISCUSSION...

A warm front lifting across the region will generate some light
precipitation. As this feature continues northeast, it will be
replaced by milder air across western and central South Dakota.
Winds will also increase out of the south with gusts to around
40mph.

More moisture is headed into the region for the end of the work
week, although not quite the intensity that was originally
advertised as guidance has shifted the track of the system farther
south. The weekend and next week will feature near average
temperatures.

category this afternoon. Very poor weather conditions or a
very low moisture content of grasses and other dry
organic material on the ground indicate that dangerous
burning conditions exist. Fires will spread rapidly and
show erratic behavior. Outdoor burning is not recommended.

The outlook for Thursday afternoon...The grassland fire danger index
will reach the moderate to high category.

...HIGH FIRE DANGER...

The grassland fire danger index will reach the high category
this afternoon. Unfavorable weather conditions or a low
moisture content of grasses and other dry organic material
on the ground indicate that there is a high
potential for a fire occurrence. Outdoor burning should be
restricted to early morning or evening hours when wind speeds
are usually lower and the relative humidity is higher.

The outlook for Thursday afternoon...The grassland fire danger index
will reach the moderate category.
