FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
528 AM CDT TUE MAR 31 2015

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND EARLY
EVENING FOR JAMES VALLEY AND LOWER BRULE AREAS FOR LOW HUMIDITY
AND STRONG WINDS...

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL SLOWLY SLIP EAST OF THE REGION TODAY...WITH
SOUTHERLY RETURN FLOW DEVELOPING. DESPITE VERY LOW HUMIDITY...
FIRE DANGER WILL REMAIN MODERATE TO HIGH...EXCEPT WHERE WINDS
ARE A BIT STRONGER IN LOWER BRULE AREAS.

FIRE DANGER IS LIKELY TO BE ELEVATED...VERY HIGH TO EXTREME...
WEDNESDAY WITH THE DRY CONDITIONS AND STRONG WINDS. RED FLAG
POTENTIAL WITH FIRE WEATHER WATCH ISSUED FOR AFTERNOON AND EARLY
EVENING ALONG AND WEST OF THE JAMES RIVER WITH PLUNGING POST
FRONTAL HUMIDITY AND GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS. NOT THERE WITH THE
HIGHER HUMIDITY EAST.

DEEP MIXING ON THURSDAY WILL ALSO CREATE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS
AS HUMIDITIES DROP TO A VERY LOW 15 TO 25 PERCENT...AND WINDS
LIKELY TO GUST TO AT LEAST 25 TO 30 KNOTS. WILL HAVE TO KEEP AN
EYE ON THE MISSOURI VALLEY FOR FIRE CONCERNS OVER THE WEEKEND.
IF BOUNDARY ENDS UP A BIT MORE NORTHWARD...THIS WOULD YIELD
WARMER TEMPERATURES AND MUCH LOWER HUMIDITY. HOWEVER...WINDS
WOULD LIKELY REMAIN BELOW ANY CRITERIA FOR CRITICAL BEHAVIOR.
