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. THIS WILL PRODUCE EXTREME FIRE DANGER ACROSS ALL AREAS EXCEPT THE LOWER BRULE REGION IN SOUTH CENTRAL SOUTH DAKOTA THIS AFTERNOON, WHERE WINDS SHOULD BE A LITTLE LIGHTER 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, MAINLY ALONG AND WEST OF THE JAMES RIVER VALLEY. CONSIDER POSTPONING BURNING DUE TO THE VERY HIGH OR EXTREME FIRE DANGER. , EXTREME FIRE DANGER, THE GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER INDEX WILL REACH THE EXTREME CATEGORY THIS AFTERNOON. EXTREME WEATHER CONDITIONS OR A VERY LOW MOISTURE CONTENT OF GRASSES, AND OTHER DRY ORGANIC MATERIAL ON THE GROUND, INDICATE THAT CRITICAL BURNING CONDITIONS EXIST. A FIRE WILL START EASILY AND HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BECOME LARGE AND SPREAD QUICKLY BECOMING ERRATIC WITH EXTREME BEHAVIORAL CHARACTERISTICS. NO OUTDOOR BURNING SHOULD TAKE PLACE. THE OUTLOOK FOR TUESDAY AFTERNOON, THE GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER INDEX WILL REACH THE HIGH CATEGORY TO VERY HIGH CATEGORY.
