FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
412 PM CDT FRI MAR 27 2015

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON FOR SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA
FOR VERY STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS AND MODERATELY LOW HUMIDITY...

.DISCUSSION...
VERY STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS ARE THE ROOT CAUSE OF EXPECTED VERY
HIGH TO EXTREME FIRE DANGER ON SUNDAY. SHOULD HAVE PLENTY OF TIME
TO RECOVER FROM ANY LIGHT PRECIPITATION LATER TODAY...AND
ADDITIONAL LIGHT RAINFALL THREAT SATURDAY NIGHT...BUT IT WOULD BE
THIS LATTER LIGHT RAINFALL WHICH COULD KEEP PARTS OF SW MN FROM
ATTAINING THE POTENTIAL CRITICAL BEHAVIOR. SEEMS UNLIKELY AT THIS
POINT...BUT THE SATURDAY NIGHT RAINFALL THREAT WILL NEED TO BE
WATCHED...SO THUS THE FIRE WEATHER WATCH AND NOT A RED FLAG WARNING
AT THIS TIME. AT THIS TIME...HUMIDITIES REMAIN LOCKED IN AT AROUND 20
PERCENT IN LOWER BRULE AREAS...BUT IN THE LOWER TO MID 30S FROM
INTERSTATE 29 EASTWARD. WITH WINDS GUSTING TO 45 MPH AT TIMES
EAST OF INTERSTATE 29 WENT AHEAD WITH A WATCH IN SOUTHWEST
MINNESOTA EVEN THOUGH AFTERNOON RELATIVE HUMIDITY IS AROUND 35
PERCENT. WEST OF INTERSTATE 29 THE HUMIDITY IS LOWER...BUT WINDS
MAY DECREASE DURING THE AFTERNOON...ESPECIALLY APPROACHING CENTRAL
SOUTH DAKOTA. NO WATCH IN NORTHWEST IOWA OR SOUTHEAST SOUTH DAKOTA
YET...BUT THESE AREAS WILL NEED TO BE WATCHED...AND WOULD NOT BE
SURPRISED IF A WATCH OR WARNING IS ALSO ISSUED FOR AREAS ALONG AND
EAST OF THE JAMES RIVER VALLEY IF THESE TRENDS CONTINUE.

WILL ALSO HAVE TO WATCH THE POST FRONTAL ENVIRONMENT ON WEDNESDAY
FOR AT LEAST A VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER...WITH STRONG WESTERLY WINDS
ALONG WITH LOWER HUMIDITY.

FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
524 AM CDT FRI MAR 27 2015

...VERY HIGH TO EXTREME FIRE DANGER RETURNS ON SUNDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
LIGHT PRECIPITATION WILL GRACE THE AREA LATER TODAY AND ESPECIALLY
DURING THE EVENING. AREAS EAST OF INTERSTATE 29 COULD FIND AROUND
A HALF INCH OF LIGHT SNOWFALL. AS A RESULT...FIRE DANGER WILL
REMAIN MODERATE AT BEST ON SATURDAY FROM INTERSTATE 29 EASTWARD
DESPITE AN INCREASE IN SOUTHERLY WINDS. HOWEVER...WESTERN AREAS
WILL FIND STRONG SOUTH WINDS BRINGING A RETURN TO VERY HIGH FIRE
DANGER WEST OF THE JAMES RIVER ON SATURDAY.

VERY STRONG AND GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS OF 25 TO 45 MPH WILL DEVELOP
BEHIND A FRONTAL ZONE ON SUNDAY. STRONGEST WINDS ARE EXPECTED
ACROSS SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA TOWARD THE IOWA GREAT LAKES AREA...
WHERE CONDITIONS MAY BECOME CRITICAL DURING THE AFTERNOON. THESE
AREAS WILL HAVE TO DRY OUT FROM MELTING OF ANY LIGHT SNOWFALL
WHICH OCCURS LATER TODAY...AS WELL AS ANY LIGHT RAINFALL WHICH
OCCURS SATURDAY NIGHT. THIS WILL BE ONE LIMITING FACTOR ON ANY
POTENTIAL EXTREME CONDITIONS. ANOTHER MAY BE LOWEST AFTERNOON
HUMIDITY...WHICH IS FORECAST AROUND 20 PERCENT IN LOWER BRULE
AREAS...WITH LOWER TO MID 30 PERCENT FROM INTERSTATE 29 EASTWARD.
THESE FACTORS WILL BE EVALUATED TODAY TO DETERMINE IF ANY FIRE
WEATHER HEADLINES WILL BE NEEDED FOR SUNDAY.

ANOTHER DAY OF ENHANCED FIRE WEATHER CONCERN IS WEDNESDAY. ANOTHER
STRONG FRONTAL ZONE WILL BE FOLLOWED BY STRENGTHENING WESTERLY
WIND...COMBINING WITH VERY LOW AFTERNOON HUMIDITY.

FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
524 AM CDT FRI MAR 27 2015

...VERY HIGH TO EXTREME FIRE DANGER RETURNS ON SUNDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
LIGHT PRECIPITATION WILL GRACE THE AREA LATER TODAY AND ESPECIALLY
DURING THE EVENING. AREAS EAST OF INTERSTATE 29 COULD FIND AROUND
A HALF INCH OF LIGHT SNOWFALL. AS A RESULT...FIRE DANGER WILL
REMAIN MODERATE AT BEST ON SATURDAY FROM INTERSTATE 29 EASTWARD
DESPITE AN INCREASE IN SOUTHERLY WINDS. HOWEVER...WESTERN AREAS
WILL FIND STRONG SOUTH WINDS BRINGING A RETURN TO VERY HIGH FIRE
DANGER WEST OF THE JAMES RIVER ON SATURDAY.

VERY STRONG AND GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS OF 25 TO 45 MPH WILL DEVELOP
BEHIND A FRONTAL ZONE ON SUNDAY. STRONGEST WINDS ARE EXPECTED
ACROSS SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA TOWARD THE IOWA GREAT LAKES AREA...
WHERE CONDITIONS MAY BECOME CRITICAL DURING THE AFTERNOON. THESE
AREAS WILL HAVE TO DRY OUT FROM MELTING OF ANY LIGHT SNOWFALL
WHICH OCCURS LATER TODAY...AS WELL AS ANY LIGHT RAINFALL WHICH
OCCURS SATURDAY NIGHT. THIS WILL BE ONE LIMITING FACTOR ON ANY
POTENTIAL EXTREME CONDITIONS. ANOTHER MAY BE LOWEST AFTERNOON
HUMIDITY...WHICH IS FORECAST AROUND 20 PERCENT IN LOWER BRULE
AREAS...WITH LOWER TO MID 30 PERCENT FROM INTERSTATE 29 EASTWARD.
THESE FACTORS WILL BE EVALUATED TODAY TO DETERMINE IF ANY FIRE
WEATHER HEADLINES WILL BE NEEDED FOR SUNDAY.

ANOTHER DAY OF ENHANCED FIRE WEATHER CONCERN IS WEDNESDAY. ANOTHER
STRONG FRONTAL ZONE WILL BE FOLLOWED BY STRENGTHENING WESTERLY
WIND...COMBINING WITH VERY LOW AFTERNOON HUMIDITY.

FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
403 PM CDT THU MAR 26 2015

...VERY HIGH TO EXTREME FIRE DANGER RETURNING ON SUNDAY...

COOL WEATHER WILL CONTINUE INTO FRIDAY. A BAND OF LIGHT RAIN OR
SNOW WILL MOVE FROM WEST TO EAST ACROSS THIS FORECAST AREA
DURING THE DAY ON FRIDAY AND FRIDAY EVENING. HOWEVER MOST
LIQUID AMOUNTS WILL LIKELY REMAIN BELOW A TENTH OF AN INCH. SO
NOT A LOT OF DECENT WETTING PRECIPITATION.

WARMER AND WINDIER CONDITIONS WILL THEN SETUP FOR THIS WEEKEND.
A BRISK SOUTHERLY FLOW OF 20 TO 30 MPH WILL PREVAIL ON SATURDAY.
BUT THE DAY OF BIG CONCERN IS SUNDAY...WHERE NORTHWEST WINDS
WILL AVERAGE 25 TO 40 MPH...WITH SOME GUSTS EVEN UP TO 45 MPH
IN SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA AND INTO THE IOWA GREAT LAKES REGION.
MINIMUM HUMIDITY VALUES ARE PROJECTED TO FALL TO AROUND 20
PERCENT IN SOUTH CENTRAL SOUTH DAKOTA...TO AROUND 35 PERCENT
IN SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA AND THE IOWA GREAT LAKES REGION. ONE
THING TO WATCH IS A QUICK MOVING SHORT WAVE MOVING ACROSS
SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA SUNDAY MORNING. THIS WAVE COULD PRODUCE A
BIT OF LIGHT RAIN...BUT IT MAY NOT BE ENOUGH RAIN TO ELIMINATE
EXTREME FIRE DANGER ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON. THIS WILL BE FURTHER
EVALUATED ON FRIDAY FOR ANY POTENTIAL FOR FIRE HEADLINES IN
SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA AND THE IOWA GREAT LAKES REGION.

FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
456 AM CDT THU MAR 26 2015

.DISCUSSION...
FIRE DANGER WILL GENERALLY BE LOWER FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS
WITH COOLER TEMPERATURES AND LESSER WIND...ALONG WITH THE THREAT
FOR SOME LIGHT PRECIPITATION TODAY IN LOWER BRULE AREAS...AS WELL
AS AREAS MAINLY EAST OF THE JAMES RIVER ON FRIDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHT.
HOWEVER...INCREASING SOUTHERLY FLOW ON SATURDAY WILL BRING BACK
POTENTIAL FOR A VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER WEST OF THE JAMES RIVER
ON SATURDAY. SUNDAY WOULD APPEAR TO BRING AT LEAST A VERY HIGH
FIRE DANGER TO THE ENTIRE AREA...AS STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS
GUSTING TO 35 TO 45 MPH COMBINE WITH HUMIDITY AS LOW AS AROUND
20 PERCENT FOR LOWER BRULE...AND 25 TO 35 PERCENT TO THE EAST.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY WILL LIKELY BRING A VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER TO
PARTS OF THE WESTERN AND SOUTHERN CWA...WITH WEDNESDAY ANOTHER DAY
OF ENHANCED CONCERN FOR ALL WITH STRONG WESTERLY WINDS AND
LOWERING HUMIDITY.

.DISCUSSION...
THE OVERALL TREND LOOKING FORWARD IS STILL VERY LITTLE CHANCE
FOR LARGE SCALE PRECIPITATION SYSTEMS. AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF
HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS STUBBORNLY IN PLACE ACROSS THE WESTERN
UNITED STATES...FLATTENED AT TIMES BY A PASSING UPPER TROUGH
WHICH MOVES ACROSS THE NORTHERN TIER OF STATES. CHILLY
TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE THROUGH FRIDAY. THEN BEGINNING ON
SATURDAY...A RETURN TO ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL ENSUE
FROM WEST TO EAST. WINDY CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL THIS WEEKEND...
FROM THE SOUTH ON SATURDAY...THEN FROM THE NORTHWEST ON
SUNDAY. IN PARTICULAR ON SUNDAY...THE GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER INDEX
COULD VERY WELL REACH THE VERY HIGH CATEGORY THROUGHOUT THE
ENTIRE AREA DUE TO FAIRLY DRY HUMIDITY VALUES.
