Fire Weather Planning Forecast for SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE Nebraska
National Weather Service Sioux Falls SD
456 AM CDT Tue Apr 24 2018

.DISCUSSION...
A chance of rain showers and cooler temperatures are expected for
most areas today, with rain chances greatest for areas west of the
Interstate 29 corridor. Seasonable temperatures and generally dry
conditions should prevail through the remainder of this week, with
the exception of Thursday when northwest Iowa could see a few rain
showers in the afternoon. The showers accompany a cool front, which
will be followed by gusty north winds across the region Thursday.
These stronger winds will lead to High or Very High fire danger by
Thursday afternoon.

Looking ahead to the weekend/early next week, warmer temperatures
will spread into the region, accompanied by increasing southerly
winds, especially Sunday and Monday. The warmer temperatures and
stronger winds will produce elevated fire danger both days.
