FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN
AND NORTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORTH PLATTE NE
308 PM CDT WED APR 23 2014

.DISCUSSION...

FIRE DANGER WILL BE NEAR CRITICAL ON THURSDAY. DRY AIR WILL BE IN
PLACE OVER THE DISTRICTS...WITH RELATIVE HUMIDITY EXPECTED TO DROP
DOWN NEAR 15 PERCENT. WINDS MAY BE A LIMITING FACTOR ON HOW
EXTREME THE FIRE DANGER GETS. AT THIS TIME...THERE IS POTENTIAL
FOR FREQUENT WINDS TO 25 MPH...HOWEVER CONFIDENCE ON THIS ISN/T
HIGH. FRIDAY WILL BE A WARM AND DRY DAY...BUT LIGHT WINDS ARE
FORECAST. THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR A LARGE SYSTEM TO MOVE ACROSS THE
CENTRAL PLAINS THIS WEEKEND TO BRING CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION. AT
THIS TIME THERE IS CONSIDERABLE UNCERTAINTY ON WHERE AND HOW MUCH
WILL OCCUR.
