249 AM CDT Sun May 20 2018


High pressure along the North and South Dakota state line this
morning will gradually build into the western lakes region. This
will shift winds from north/northeast to easterly, though only on
the order of 10 to 20mph today. Dry air remains in place, while
temperatures warm somewhat compared to Saturday, with highs around
70 and afternoon humidity again down to 20 to 30 percent.

As the high continues to move east, we will get into return
southerly flow which means that while temperatures warm, we will
also see an uptick in humidity.

low. Outdoor burning under these conditions can usually be
performed with reasonable safety precautions.

will reach the low category.
