Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central and South Central
Minnesota and West Central Wisconsin
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
317 AM CDT Sat Sep 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A surface cold front was across western Minnesota early this
morning. Most of the precipitation was along and behind this
front, which will continue through tonight as this front remains
nearly stationary, or even moves back to the west. Sunday,
and Sunday afternoon, this front will begin to move eastward
again. By Monday, this front will have moved through most of
Minnesota, and through western Wisconsin by Monday night.
The wet period across western Minnesota will translate eastward
once this front begins to move. Much cooler, but seasonable
temperatures will return by midweek, with drier weather
expected.
