FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
444 AM CDT MON MAR 30 2015

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FOR THE ENTIRE AREA FOR LOW HUMIDITY
AND STRONG WINDS NOON TO 8 PM CDT...

.DISCUSSION...
DEEP MIXING IN A DRY ATMOSPHERE IS ANTICIPATED THIS AFTERNOON...
WHICH WILL RESULT IN WARM TEMPERATURES...COLLAPSING DEW POINTS...
AND GUSTY WEST TO NORTHWEST WINDS. WINDS WILL AVERAGE 20 TO 30 MPH
WITH GUSTS TO 35 MPH AT TIMES. WITH THE VERY DRY AIR MIXING TO THE
SURFACE...LOWEST HUMIDITY LEVELS WILL BE IN THE 15 TO 25 PERCENT
RANGE FOR A GOOD PORTION OF THE AFTERNOON. THEREFORE...CRITICAL
FIRE CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED AND A RED FLAG WARNING HAS BEEN
ISSUED FROM NOON TO 8 PM. CONDITIONS WILL RAPIDLY IMPROVE BY
SUNSET AS MIXING COMES TO A HALT.

IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE A WEEK OF CONCERN AT TIMES...AS PERIODS OF
ENHANCED MIXING ARE LIKELY DRIVING AFTERNOON HUMIDITY TO LOW LEVELS
AND WINDS TO STRONGER LEVELS. DESPITE A CONTINUATION OF DRY AIR...
TUESDAY WOULD APPEAR TO BE THE ONE DAY IN THE SHORTER TERM OF
SOMEWHAT LOWER CONCERN WITH MARKEDLY LESSER WINDS...STRONGEST AT 10
TO 20 MPH IN RETURN FLOW BACK ACROSS LOWER BRULE AREAS WHERE FIRE
DANGER WILL BE VERY HIGH.

ON WEDNESDAY...ANOTHER STRONG FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL PUSH ACROSS THE
AREA. EAST OF I 29 WILL SEE AN INCREASE IN MOISTURE AND HUMIDITY
GENERALLY 35 TO 45 PERCENT. DESPITE SOME VERY STRONG PREFRONTAL
SOUTHERLY FLOW WHICH MAY GUST TO AROUND 45 MPH ACROSS PARTS OF SW MN
AND NW IA DURING THE LATE NIGHT/EARLY MORNING...HIGHER HUMIDITY WILL
RESTRICT FIRE DANGER TO VERY HIGH...PRIOR TO RAINFALL POTENTIAL
THROUGH THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING. SOME EXTREME FIRE DANGER IS
POSSIBLE DURING THE AFTERNOON WEST OF I 29 BEHIND FRONT...WHERE
HUMIDITY WILL DROP TO 20 TO 30 PERCENT...AND NORTHWEST WINDS BECOME
GUSTY.

THURSDAY IS A CLASSIC MIXING DAY ONCE AGAIN...GENERALLY LOOKING
AT 20 TO 30 PERCENT RELATIVE HUMIDITY...POTENTIALLY A BIT LOWER
THROUGH THE MISSOURI VALLEY. WITH 25 TO 35 KNOTS OF WIND IN THE
MIXED LAYER...WILL AT LEAST END UP WITH ANOTHER DAY OF VERY HIGH
FIRE DANGER.

SOME GREATER UNCERTAINTY EXISTS FOR THE WEEKEND...BUT THERE IS
POTENTIAL FOR EACH DAY TO REACH AT LEAST VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER.
