Breezy and gusty northerly winds will be felt across the region this
morning, with winds turning more northwesterly by late afternoon.
Relative humidity will range from the mid 20s to lower 30s across
most of the area by late afternoon, which will once again bring high
to very high fire danger.

The wind direction will remain from the north on Friday, and also
become breezy and gusty once again. Relative humidity will bottom
out in the low to mid 20s across central South Dakota during the
afternoon, with readings in the mid 30s over eastern portions of the
forecast area.

Warmer temperatures will move in this weekend and into early next

with strong and gusty southerly winds. Fire danger will likely be
very high across the entire area Sunday afternoon.
