Fire Weather Planning Forecast for E ND, NW and WC MN
National Weather Service Grand Forks ND
310 PM CDT Mon Aug 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...A brief shower or thunderstorm may affect mainly
northwest Minnesota through the early evening. Otherwise look for
decreasing clouds with low temperatures dipping into the upper
40s to lower 50s. As high pressure builds into the region
tomorrow, breezy northwest winds will combine with dry fuels and
Rh values into the mid 30s to produce heightened fire weather
conditions over far north west Minnesota.. Generally dry
conditions are expected through the work week with temperatures on
the low side of seasonal normals.
