FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
411 AM CDT MON MAY 4 2015


.DISCUSSION...

A FAIRLY DRY DAY ACROSS THE REGION...AS TEMPERATURES AGAIN CLIMB
INTO THE 70S. WE WILL MIX DOWN FAIRLY DRY AIR BY MID
AFTERNOON...WITH RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES FALLING INTO THE 18 TO
25 PERCENT RANGE ALONG AND NORTH OF I-90. SLIGHTLY HIGHER VALUES
IN THE LOW 30S ARE LIKELY ALONG THE MISSOURI RIVER AND FURTHER
EAST INTO NORTHWESTERN IOWA. A NORTH WIND AT DAYBREAK WILL BEGIN
TO TURN TO THE NORTHEAST AND EVENTUALLY EAST THROUGH THE DAY.
WINDS SPEEDS WILL INCREASE BETWEEN 10 AND 20 MPH...HOWEVER THE
STRONGEST WINDS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BE COLLOCATED WITH THE LOWEST
RELATIVE HUMIDITY. THAT SAID...A HIGH GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER RISK
WILL PERSIST OVER THE ENTIRE AREA THIS AFTERNOON.

RAIN CHANCES WILL BEGIN TO INCREASE TONIGHT WITH DAILY CHANCE OF
RAIN THROUGH NEXT WEEKEND. THE MOST WIDESPREAD RAINS MAY OCCUR ON
WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT...AND AGAIN AS WE MOVE INTO NEXT
WEEKEND.
