Forecast is based on ignition time of 0900 CDT on May 22.

please call the National Weather Service.

.DISCUSSION...

Higher RH`s are in store for the rest of the week as moisture
filters into the area except the MN Arrowhead.  Do not anticipate
any critical fire weather danger due to lack of strong winds though
the moisture at the burn site may again be a limiting factor for
burning. RH`s are expected to be in the mid 20s though model
guidance leaves the MN Arrowhead high and dry, so there may be a
moist bias there where model RH`s drop even lower than forecast.
