CDT THIS EVENING FOR SOUTH CENTRAL AND FAR SOUTHEAST SOUTH DAKOTA
AND EXTREME NORTHEAST NEBRASKA FOR STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS AND VERY
DRY AIR...

.DISCUSSION...

VERY HIGH TO EXTREME FIRE WEATHER OVER MOST OF THE AREA TODAY
GIVEN THE STRONG WINDS AND STILL DRY AIR. RED FLAG WILL BE ISSUED
FOR THE SOUTH DAKOTA FIRE ZONES EXCEPT IN EAST CENTRAL SOUTH
DAKOTA...AND ALSO WILL BE ISSUED FOR EXTREME NORTHEAST NEBRASKA.
FURTHER EAST...THE HUMIDITY WILL STAY ABOVE CRITERIA. THE SATURDAY
RAIN IS NO LONGER A FACTOR GIVEN THE STRONG DRYING YESTERDAY IN
REMAINING DORMANT VEGETATION. WHILE SOME GREENING OF GRASSES NEAR
THE SURFACE MAY BE CUTTING THE FIRE START THREAT...ANY FIRES THAT
DO START WILL STILL SPREAD RAPIDLY SINCE THE TALL AND STILL
DORMANT GRASSES WILL THEN CARRY THE FIRE.

VERY DRY AIR WILL PERSIST OVER MUCH OF THE AREA WEDNESDAY AND
THURSDAY...WITH AFTERNOON HUMIDITY LEVELS OF 15 TO 25 PERCENT...
EASING A BIT THROUGH THE MISSOURI RIVER VALLEY BY THURSDAY. WINDS
WILL BE MUCH LIGHTER THAN MONDAY OR TODAY THOUGH...WHICH SHOULD
LESSEN THE FIRE DANGER. THE ONLY EXCEPTION WILL BE A SMALL PART OF
SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA ON WEDNESDAY...WHERE LINGERING STRONGER WINDS
MAY STILL RESULT IN VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER.
