.DISCUSSION...

CONCERNS FOR TODAY REVOLVE AROUND WIND SPEEDS AND ATMOSPHERIC
DESSICATION FROM MIXING OF DRY AIR ALOFT TO THE SURFACE.
EXAMINATION OF SOUNDINGS AND OTHER INFORMATION SUGGEST HUMIDITY
REDUCTION TO NEAR 30 PERCENT BY MID AFTERNOON...A LITTLE LOWER
OVER THE CENTRAL/SOUTHERN VALLEY AND WEST CENTRAL MINNESOTA WHERE
WE MAY APPROACH CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS. THE SITUATION
WILL BE TRACKED AND MONITORED THIS MORNING THROUGH THE AFTERNOON
AND ADJUSTMENTS CAN BE MADE AS DEEMED NECESSARY.

THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEKEND WILL FEATURE LIGHTER WINDS FOR SUNDAY
AND CONTINUED DRY WEATHER THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK.
