.DISCUSSION...

Expect increasing south winds today, from light south winds this
morning to upwards of 10 mph sustained, with gusts to 15 mph this
afternoon. Smoke dispersal will be good from mid day through the
afternoon. Afternoon temperatures will again climb into the low
to mid 60s, with minimum relative humidity values mainly in the
upper 20s to 30s and slightly higher values over lingering snow
cover.

The areas of lower relative humidities today, including
much of northwest and west central Minnesota, 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.
