Extreme Fire Danger


Rangeland Fire Danger Statement
National Weather Service Sioux Falls SD
443 PM CDT Wed Sep 30 2020

.DISCUSSION...
Critical fire weather conditions remain in areas from the Middle
to Lower James River Valley, through the Lower Big Sioux Valley
and into portions of northwest Iowa this afternoon. Several hot
spots and reports of wildfires across the forecast area today as
observed winds have gusted over 45 mph and RH values range from 20
to 30 percent in quite a few spots. Strong northwest winds will
slowly begin to subside through the afternoon, but won`t
completely relax until after dark.

Fire weather concerns ease a bit over the upcoming days as cooler
temperatures arrive and winds relax.

People are urged to exercise extreme care with respect to outdoor
activities that could cause grass fires. Avoid equipment that can
cause sparks near dry grass or brush. Do not toss cigarettes on
the ground. Report new fires quickly to the nearest fire
department or law enforcement office.

...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.

OUTLOOK FOR THURSDAY AFTERNOON...The Grassland Fire Danger Index
will reach the high category.

The grassland fire danger product reflects fire danger for native
grasses. It is not intended for cured agricultural crops, nor
will it reflect conditions in road ditches which have been mowed.
