...ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS TODAY FOR PORTIONS OF
CENTRAL, SOUTHERN, AND EASTERN MINNESOTA AND WEST CENTRAL
WISCONSIN THIS AFTERNOON INTO EARLY EVENING...

Warm, dry, and breezy conditions will lead to near critical fire
weather conditions today. North/northeasterly winds of 15 MPH
gusting to 20-25 MPH are expected this afternoon. Minimum
relative humidity values at or below 25 percent (dipping into the
teens in western Minnesota), will lead to an elevated risk for
rapid spreading of fires.
