Fire Weather Planning Forecast for E ND, NW and WC MN
National Weather Service Grand Forks ND
521 AM CDT Wed Mar 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...

High pressure will shift east today as a warm front approaches
from the west. Clouds will overspread the area today and look for
south to southeast winds to increase and become quite strong in
the Red Rive valley. There is a small chance for a little light
snow and rain over mainly west central Minnesota this afternoon as
moisture moves east ahead of the warm front.

Tonight will see the gusty south to southeast winds continue.

An upper level system to our south will spread moisture and areas
of light rain over the area during the day Thursday and Thursday
evening.
