FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN
AND NORTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORTH PLATTE NE
334 PM CST SAT NOV 22 2014

.DISCUSSION...

MORE TYPICAL TEMPERATURES FOR LATE FALL RETURN FOLLOWING A STRONG
COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE TONIGHT. WINDS WILL BE STRONG ON SUNDAY FROM
THE NORTHWEST BUT WITH LOWER TEMPERATURES...RELATIVE HUMIDITY
SHOULD BE HIGH ENOUGH TO LIMIT FIRE DANGER POTENTIAL. THERE IS A
CHANCE FOR RAIN OR SNOW FOR MUCH OF THE AREA TONIGHT INTO SUNDAY
ALTHOUGH AMOUNTS WILL BE LIGHT. TEMPERATURES FOR THE REMAINDER OF
THE WEEK STAY NEAR TO BELOW NORMAL ACROSS THE DISTRICTS WITH
INTERMITTENT CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION. NO SIGNIFICANT
PRECIPITATION IS CURRENTLY IN THE FORECAST AND THE POTENTIAL FOR
CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER DANGER IS LOW AT THIS TIME.
