Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western
and North Central Nebraska
National Weather Service North Platte NE
257 PM CST Thu Nov 14 2019

.DISCUSSION...

Dry weather will continue the rest of the week and into the
weekend with RH values well above 30 percent on Friday for most
of north central Nebraska. The exception will be across southwest
Nebraska where RH values may drop to 20 to 25 percent. However,
winds across southwest Nebraska will be under 5 knots. This will
be the same scenario on Saturday, except winds will increase to 10
to 15 knots Saturday afternoon. For now, will keep fire concerns
limited to heightened for Friday due to light winds. Will keep an
eye on the conditions for Saturday over the next day as fire
concerns may have to be increased to elevated.
