Fire Weather Forecast For Central/NE South Dakota WC MN
National Weather Service Aberdeen SD
558 PM CST Sat Dec 16 2017
.DISCUSSION...
Winds will be light on Sunday, and begin to favor a southwest 
direction throughout the day. Relative humidity will remain fairly 
high, with readings ranging from the 40s and 50s over central South 
Dakota to the 60s and 70s further east. 
Another surge of mild air and well above normal temperatures will 
spread over the area on Monday. Winds will also become breezy from 
the west as the air drys out, thus elevating fire danger once again. 
Relative humidity is forecast to fall into the 30s across south 
central South Dakota, with 40s and 50s expected elsewhere.
