Fire Weather Forecast For Central/NE South Dakota WC MN
National Weather Service Aberdeen SD
629 PM CDT Thu Apr 26 2018

.DISCUSSION...

Winds will remain from the north or northwest on Friday, becoming
breezy and gusty at times, once again, behind another morning cold
frontal passage. Minimum afternoon relative humidity will range from
the low 20s across central South Dakota to the mid 30s over eastern
portions of the forecast area.

Warmer temperatures are still in the forecast this weekend and into
early next week. In fact, it appears Sunday, and possibly Monday,
could be rather windy across the region. Fire danger will likely be
very high across the entire area Sunday afternoon given the dry fine
fuels, strong winds and above normal warm air that are all expected.

At this time, showers and thunderstorms begin to show up in the
forecast by Monday, with better chances for wetting rains later
Monday night into Tuesday.
