Fire Weather Planning Forecast for E ND, NW and WC MN
National Weather Service Grand Forks ND
303 PM CDT Fri Apr 20 2018

.DISCUSSION...

Warm and dry conditions continue through the weekend, with the
next chance for precipitation (possibly a wetting rain) Monday
night and Tuesday mainly across the southerly Red River Valley.
Relative humidities will continue to remain below 30 percent
across portions of Minnesota, but winds should remain below 10
mph. Winds do increase on Sunday, and this raises the possibility
for critical fire weather conditions if gusty winds and lower
relative humidities line up. This will need to be monitored.
