FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
500 AM CDT SAT MAY 2 2015

...VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER TODAY IN AREAS FROM NEAR HURON TO
CHAMBERLAIN...

...VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER AGAIN ON SUNDAY FOR AREAS GENERALLY
WEST OF A HENDRICKS TO TYNDALL LINE...

.DISCUSSION...
AN UNSEASONABLY WARM DAY IS EXPECTED WITH INCREASING SOUTHERLY
WINDS PREVAILING. LOWEST AFTERNOON RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES ARE
EXPECTED TO DROP AS LOW AS 20 PERCENT...ESPECIALLY IN AREAS NORTH
OF INTERSTATE 90. WINDS REMAIN THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE TODAY...WITH
CURRENT MIXING SUGGESTING PERHAPS ONLY AN OCCASIONAL GUST TO NEAR
25 MPH. AS A RESULT...FIRE DANGER WILL REACH VERY HIGH FROM THE
MID JAMES VALLEY TOWARD LOWER BRULE LOCATIONS...BUT CONDITIONS
WILL LIKELY STAY BELOW CRITICAL.

ON SUNDAY...AS A FRONTAL ZONE MOVES ACROSS SOUTHEAST SOUTH
DAKOTA...AFTERNOON RELATIVE HUMIDITY WILL DROP TO 25 TO 35
PERCENT...BUT NORTHERLY WINDS WILL INCREASE TO A GUSTY 20 TO
30 MPH. THIS WILL AGAIN DRIVE FIRE DANGER INTO THE VERY HIGH
RANGE WEST OF A BROOKINGS TO TYNDALL LINE. FURTHER EAST AS THE
COLD FRONT PUSHES INTO SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA...NORTHWEST IOWA...
AND EXTREME NORTHEAST NEBRASKA...SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL
BEGIN TO DEVELOP LATER IN THE AFTERNOON. A DECENT SHOT AT A
WETTING RAIN IS EXPECTED LATER SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING
SOUTHEAST OF A WINDOM TO VERMILLION LINE.

A MUCH WETTER PERIOD APPEARS ON TRACK AROUND THE MIDDLE OF THE
WEEK.
