Rangeland Fire Danger Statement
National Weather Service Aberdeen SD
249 AM CDT Mon May 21 2018


As high pressure continues to retreat to the east, this will leave
us with south to southeast flow in the low levels. This will bring
in more humid air, but will also result in warmer temperatures.
Initially today, the area will see cloud cover, with an isolated
shower or two over eastern South Dakota and western Minnesota. As
the day progresses this is expected to breakup somewhat, with highs
in the 70s along and west of the James, to upper 60s where clouds
and showers are expected to persist the longest. Afternoon humidity
will only fall to between 40 and 60 percent from west to east.

A steady warming trend is anticipated through the work week, with a
steady increase in humidity as well as chances for moisture.

The grassland fire danger index will reach the low category
this afternoon. Favorable weather conditions or a high moisture
content of grasses and other dry organic material on the
ground indicate that the probability of a fire occurrence is
low. Outdoor burning under these conditions can usually be
performed with reasonable safety precautions.

The outlook for Tuesday afternoon...The grassland fire danger index
will reach the low category.
