.DISCUSSION...

A trough of low pressure to the west will bring increasing south
winds today, highest in northeastern North Dakota with near 20 mph
by afternoon, and lowest in northwestern Minnesota near Lake of
the Woods. Afternoon temperatures will again climb into the 50s
and low 60s, with minimum relative humidity values mainly in the
30 and 40 percent ranges, with slightly higher values over
lingering snow cover and a few spots in northwestern Minnesota
dropping to near 20 percent. The areas of lower relative
humidities today will be the focus of concern for tomorrow, as
winds continue to increase. Near critical fire weather conditions
will be possible Sunday in portions of northwestern Minnesota.

Dry conditions and fairly low relative humidity values will
continue into Monday, although winds are expected to be lighter. A
chance for rain arrives on Tuesday.
