State fire meteorologist predicts fire weather conditions

Posted:

If the western part of South Dakota was still in drought conditions you could probably say "Here we go again." But as it stands now, concern that Wednesday is ripe for wildland fires is kind of an anomaly.

State fire meteorologist Darren Clabo predicts critical fire weather conditions expected across the area because of high temperatures, gusty winds, and low humidity.

This comes less than a week after Clabo forecasted a mild fire season for 2014.

Of course, he did warn us that daily weather conditions also come into play when forecasting from day–to–day.

South Dakota Wildland fire officials say last year more of the fires were of State, but the summer before the fire season in the area was very bad.
