NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DULUTH MN
1026 AM CDT THU APR 28 2016

FORECAST IS BASED ON IGNITION TIME OF 1300 CDT ON APRIL 28.
IF CONDITIONS BECOME UNREPRESENTATIVE...CONTACT THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE.

.DISCUSSION...THE FOCUS FOR THE REST OF TODAY WILL BE CLOUD COVER
TRENDS...AS WELL AS TEMPERATURES AND RELATIVE HUMIDITY. IT LOOKS TO
BE A PRETTY SURE BET THAT WE WILL SEE SOME OF THE BREAKS IN THE
CLOUDS TO THE EAST OF THE FIRE SITE SPREADING IN DURING THE DAY.
THIS SHOULD HELP US TO ATTAIN THAT HIGH TEMPERATURE IN THE MID
50S. IF WE SEE LESS...IT MIGHT BE PUSHING IT TO GET TO THAT NUMBER
AND VICE VERSA...IF WE SEE MORE SUNSHINE...IT COULD GO A FEW
DEGREES HIGHER. WINDS WILL GENERALLY REMAIN NORTHEAST TO EAST.
RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES APPEAR TO GO INTO THE 20 TO 30 PERCENT
RANGE AT THAT LOCATION THIS AFTERNOON. GIVE ME A CALL IF YOU WANT
ANY MORE INFORMATION OR UPDATES! GLAD TO HELP!
