Red Flag Warning Posted
A Red Flag Warning is in effect for most of Minnesota. The combination of bright sun, 11 days in a row with no rain, relative humidity in the 10-15% and gusty winds this afternoon will enhance the risk of brushfires, which can spread rapidly once they flare up. The situation will remain dangerous until weekend rains, and the imminent spring "green-up", which is still 1-2 weeks away.
