FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
611 AM CDT WED APR 23 2014

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH FOR WIND AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY FOR THE
LOWER BRULE...JAMES RIVER VALLEY...AND EXTREME NORTHEAST NEBRASKA
FOR THURSDAY AFTERNOON...

.DISCUSSION...
STRONG SOUTH WINDS OF 20 TO 35 MPH ARE EXPECTED TODAY...WITH
OCCASIONAL GUSTS TO 45 MPH...ESPECIALLY IN THE LATE MORNING THROUGH
MID AFTERNOON. THESE STRONG WINDS WILL CREATE VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER
THROUGHOUT THE REGION...DESPITE AFTERNOON HUMIDITY LEVELS RANGING
FROM THE 30 TO 35 PERCENT IN THE LOWER BRULE AREA...TO HIGHER THAN
50 PERCENT ACROSS PARTS OF SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA AND NORTHWEST IOWA.
SPOTTY LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS EARLY THIS MORNING SHOULD HAVE LITTLE
EFFECT ON THE DRYNESS OF ONE HOUR FUELS GIVEN THE STRONG WINDS.

MORE WIDESPREAD RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TONIGHT...ESPECIALLY FROM THE
LOWER MISSOURI AND BIG SIOUX RIVER VALLEYS...THROUGH NORTHWEST IOWA
AND PARTS OF SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA. AFTER THIS PRECIPITATION DEPARTS
EARLY THURSDAY...CONCERNS OVER POTENTIAL FOR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER
ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE AREA INCREASE AGAIN FOR THURSDAY AFTERNOON.
STRONG MIXING WITHIN DRYING AIR MASS BEHIND DEPARTING LOW PRESSURE
SYSTEM EARLY THURSDAY IS EXPECTED TO YIELD GUSTY WEST WINDS IN THE
25 TO 35 MPH RANGE... ALONG WITH VERY LOW HUMIDITY LEVELS OF 15 TO
20 PERCENT FROM THE LOWER BRULE REGION...THROUGH THE JAMES RIVER
VALLEY...AND INTO EXTREME NORTHEAST NEBRASKA. GIVEN THE CONSISTENCY
WHICH HAS BEEN SEEN THE PAST FEW DAYS INDICATING THIS EXPECTED
PATTERN...HAVE ISSUED A FIRE WEATHER WATCH FOR FIRE ZONES 255...256
AND 258 IN SOUTH DAKOTA...AS WELL AS NEBRASKA FIRE ZONE 249...WHERE
OVERNIGHT RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TO BE MUCH LESS THAN AREAS FARTHER

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
439 PM CDT TUE APR 22 2014

...ENHANCED FIRE DANGER NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS...WITH VERY HIGH TO
EXTREME FIRE DANGER ON THURSDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
SOUTHEASTERLY WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE TONIGHT AND BECOME
QUITE STRONG ON WEDNESDAY.  EVEN WITH AN INCREASE FROM THE VERY
LOW AFTERNOON HUMIDITIES ON TUESDAY...EXPECTED TO VARY FROM
AROUND 30 PERCENT IN LOWER BRULE LOCATIONS TO 50 TO 55 PERCENT
ACROSS SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA ON WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON...THE STRENGTH
OF THE WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO CREATE A VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER.
SOME AREAS OF LIGHT PRECIPITATION WILL INTERMIX DURING THE LATER
TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY MORNING TIME FRAME...BUT THE STRONG
WINDS AND FAIRLY LIGHT AMOUNTS WILL MAKE FOR QUITE REACTIVE ONE
HOUR FUELS.

A MORE WIDESPREAD RAINFALL IS EXPECTED ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT...
ESPECIALLY FROM THE LOWER MISSOURI AND BIG SIOUX VALLEY THROUGH
NORTHWEST IOWA AND SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA. AFTER THIS PRECIPITATION...
CONCERN WILL INCREASE AGAIN ON THURSDAY. STRONG DRYING IS EXPECTED
WHICH WILL TAKE AFTERNOON HUMIDITY LEVELS TO 15 TO 30 PERCENT...
LOWEST IN SOUTH CENTRAL SOUTH DAKOTA...COMBINED WITH STRONG
WESTERLY WINDS OF 20 TO 30 MPH. WHILE FIRE WEATHER HEADLINES HAVE
NOT YET BEEN POSTED FOR THURSDAY...IT IS VERY POSSIBLE THAT SOME
WOULD BE ISSUED WITHIN THE NEXT DAY OR SO. HIGHEST CONCERNS WILL
REVOLVE LOWER BRULE AND JAMES VALLEY AREAS WHICH ARE LIKELY TO
RECEIVE LESS RAINFALL ON WEDNESDAY.

FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SE SD/SW MN/NW IA/NE NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
516 AM CDT TUE APR 22 2014

...GUSTY WINDS WILL CREATE VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER THROUGH THURSDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
SOUTHEASTERLY WINDS WILL INCREASE TO 20 TO 25 MPH WITH GUSTS OF 30
TO 35 MPH THROUGH SOUTH CENTRAL SOUTH DAKOTA AND THE JAMES RIVER
VALLEY TODAY. THIS IN COMBINATION WITH AFTERNOON RELATIVE HUMIDITY
OF AROUND 25 PERCENT WILL RESULT IN A VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER ACROSS
THAT AREA. WITH RH VALUES BEING MARGINAL...HELD OFF ON ISSUING A RED
FLAG WARNING...HOWEVER...IF DEW POINTS DROP LOWER THAN EXPECTED OR
TEMPERATURES WARM MORE THAN EXPECTED...FUTURE SHIFT MAY HAVE TO
RE-EVALUATE.

WINDY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE REGION WEDNESDAY...THOUGH
INCREASING LOW LEVEL MOISTURE AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING FRONT SHOULD
KEEP HUMIDITY LEVELS IN CHECK...WITH MINIMUM AFTERNOON HUMIDITY
LEVELS RANGING FROM 30 TO 40 PERCENT IN THE LOWER BRULE AREA...TO 50
PERCENT OR HIGHER IN SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA AND THE IOWA GREAT LAKES.
DESPITE THE HIGHER HUMIDITY LEVELS...FIRE DANGER WILL STILL BE HIGH
TO VERY HIGH DUE TO THE STRONG WINDS.

FIRE DANGER CONCERNS INCREASE AGAIN ON THURSDAY HOWEVER...WITH LOW
LEVEL DRYING AND GUSTY WESTERLY WINDS DEVELOPING BEHIND THE DEPARTING
FRONT. THE AREA OF GREATEST CONCERN WOULD BE FROM THE LOWER BRULE
INTO THE JAMES RIVER VALLEY AND LOWER BIG SIOUX RIVER VALLEY. THESE
AREAS WILL SEE THE STRONGEST AFTERNOON WINDS IN THE 20 TO 30 MPH
RANGE...ALONG WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR MINIMUM HUMIDITY LEVELS OF 15 TO
25 PERCENT. WILL NOT ISSUE ANY FIRE WEATHER HEADLINES AT THIS TIME...
BUT THE FORECAST FOR THESE AREAS WILL BE MONITORED CLOSELY OVER THE
NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.

THIS EVENING FOR WIND AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY FOR FIRE WEATHER
ZONES 249...256...257...258...300...301 AND 900...

.DISCUSSION...
NORTHWESTERLY WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE TO 20 TO 25 MPH BY THIS
AFTERNOON WITH GUSTS TO 35 MPH ACROSS MOST OF THE AREA. IN
ADDITION... WITH GOOD MIXING IN A DRYING ATMOSPHERE...AFTERNOON
RELATIVE HUMIDITY WILL RANGE FROM AROUND 20 TO 25 PERCENT...THOUGH
SLIGHTLY HIGHER OVER SOUTHWESTERN MINNESOTA. IN LIGHT OF THIS...
ELECTED TO UPGRADE THE FIRE WEATHER WATCH TO A RED FLAG WARNING...
WHICH COVERS ALL AREAS EXCEPT THE LOWER BRULE REGION IN SOUTH
CENTRAL SOUTH DAKOTA THIS AFTERNOON...WHERE SOMEWHAT LIGHTER WINDS
ARE EXPECTED IN A WEAKER GRADIENT AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN FROM
THE NORTHWEST. WILL WATCH WIND SPEEDS CLOSELY HOWEVER...AS THE LOWER
BRULE WILL ALSO HAVE LOWEST HUMIDITY LEVELS IN THE 15 TO 20 PERCENT
RANGE THROUGH PART OF THIS AFTERNOON. THE MOST CRITICAL FIRE DANGER
PERIOD WILL BE FROM EARLY AFTERNOON INTO EARLY THIS EVENING.

TUESDAY WILL BE ANOTHER DAY TO WATCH FOR FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS...
ESPECIALLY IN OUR CENTRAL AND WEST WITH SOUTHEAST-SOUTH LOW LEVEL
FLOW INCREASING THROUGH THE DAY AS SURFACE RIDGE SHIFTS EAST...AND
STRONG MIXING LEADING TO HUMIDITY LEVELS OF 20 TO 25 PERCENT. WINDS
AT THIS TIME LOOK TO REMAIN SHY OF RED FLAG CRITERIA...BUT WILL
LIKELY BE ANOTHER DAY OF VERY HIGH DANGER FOR PARTS OF OUR AREA...
