Rangeland Fire Danger Statement
National Weather Service Sioux Falls SD
439 AM CDT Wed Jun 26 2019

Scattered storms around the region this morning are expected to
work east leaving the better part of the day dry. However, a front
is expected to lift north tonight becoming the focus for
additional storms. These storms may be severe producing large hail
and damaging winds. Tough call on temperatures on Thursday, but
if clouds linger, temperature may struggle to warm. The cooler
conditions are not expected to last, as a significant warm up is
expected Friday into the weekend with temperatures in the 90s.
With dew points near 70, heat index values will rise above the
century mark during the afternoon and evening hours.

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.

OUTLOOK FOR THURSDAY AFTERNOON...The Grassland Fire Danger Index
will reach the low category.

The grassland fire danger product reflects fire danger for native
