FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
511 AM CDT SUN MAY 3 2015

...VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER AGAIN TODAY FROM PARTS OF SOUTHWEST
MINNESOTA THROUGH MUCH OF SOUTHEAST SOUTH DAKOTA...

.DISCUSSION...
AS A FRONTAL ZONE MOVES ACROSS THE AREA TODAY...SOUTHERLY WINDS
WILL SHIFT AROUND TO NORTH AND BECOME A GUSTY 15 TO 30 MPH. WHEN
COMBINED WITH RELATIVE HUMIDITY OF 25 TO 32 PERCENT...THIS WILL
LEAD TO A VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER TODAY WEST OF A MARSHALL TO SIOUX
FALLS TO LAKE ANDES LINE.  FURTHER EAST ALONG THE COLD FRONT BY
LATE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING...SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL
PROVIDE WETTING RAINFALL SOUTHEAST OF A JACKSON TO VERMILLION
LINE.

AS THE FRONT IS DRIVEN SOUTHWARD TONIGHT AND MONDAY...SOME DRIER
AIR WILL ONCE AGAIN INVADE THE AREA...BUT THE SOUTHWARD PUSH
LIMITED AS RAINFALL WILL START TO RETURN NORTHWARD INTO THE
MISSOURI VALLEY LATE MONDAY. IN FACT...MUCH OF THE UPCOMING
WEEK LOOKS TO OFFER PERIODS OF WETTING RAINFALL.
