Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Wyoming/Western Nebraska
National Weather Service Cheyenne WY
454 AM MDT Thu Apr 26 2018

.DISCUSSION...

Gusty north winds of 30 to 40 mph are ongoing this morning for the
High Plains in WY and western NE. These will continue through late
morning and then subside through the afternoon as humidity levels
drop. Temperatures will be cooler today area-wide and overall
minimum humidity values will be higher then yesterday. This will
limit overall fire weather concerns. Friday will be warmer and
drier as humidity values fall into the 10 to 20 percentiles.
Luckily, winds will be quite light and again fire weather concerns
will be low.

A few higher terrain showers and isolated thunderstorms could occur
Saturday with the High Plains remaining dry.

Next better chance of widespread wetting precipitation will be Monday
and again mid-next week as snow system could move into the region.
