Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central and South Central
Minnesota and West Central Wisconsin
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
335 AM CDT Sun Mar 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Bands of light rain will be common across much of the planning
area today as a low pressure system to the south of the region
moves northeast. Rain amounts will be light and amount to a few
hundredths of an inch. The rain will end tonight as the low moves
off to the east. This will lead to a few days of dry weather at
the start of the workweek along with some sunshine. Highs in the
40s today will rise into the lower and middle 50s from Monday
onward.
