Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central and South Central
Minnesota and West Central Wisconsin
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
204 PM CDT Tue Apr 24 2018

.DISCUSSION...

No significant precipitation is expected through the
upcoming weekend. Next week looks more unsettled with
better chances of precipitation. Wind speeds tonight will
lower and back to the northwest, then west Wednesday
morning/afternoon. By Wednesday afternoon, west central
and portions of central Minnesota will see an increase in
southwest winds. Thursday will see another frontal
boundary move across the area. Although moisture is limited,
I wouldn`t be surprised to see a few hundredths of an inch.
