WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MINNESOTA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
435 AM CDT WED APR 15 2015

A PERSISTENT SOUTH WIND OVERNIGHT KEPT TEMPERATURES FROM FALLING
BELOW 50 DEGREES IN PORTIONS OF NORTHWEST MINNESOTA. LIGHT WINDS IN
THE ARROWHEAD ALLOWED FOR TEMPERATURES TO FALL TO AROUND FREEZING
WITH SOME HIGHER ELEVATIONS AROUND 40 DEGREES. ELSEWHERE PRE DAWN
TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE MID TO UPPER 40S.

USUALLY DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS HUMIDITY LEVELS NEAR THE SURFACE
RISE AS TEMPERATURES LOWER...AND DEW POINT TEMPERATURES HOLD STEADY
OR RISE. LAST NIGHT HUMIDITY LEVELS DID NOT FALL AS USUAL WITH MANY
READINGS MORE TYPICAL AROUND THE NOON HOUR. AS TEMPERATURES RISE
TODAY AND DEW POINTS LOWER...HUMIDITY LEVELS WILL FALL INTO THE 20S
AND TEENS. THIS WILL SET THE STAGE FOR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER
CONDITIONS AS WINDS INCREASE FROM THE SOUTH. DUE TO THE ABNORMALLY
DRY WINTER AND NOT MUCH PRECIPITATION THIS SPRING...FUEL MOISTURES
ARE VERY DRY AND WILL BE EASILY IGNITED.

LATER TONIGHT HUMIDITY LEVELS SHOULD START TO RISE AS A DECAYING
STORM SYSTEM ACROSS THE PLAINS MOVES NORTHWARD INTO THE UPPER
MIDWEST...AND ALLOWS FOR ISOLATED SHOWERS TO DEVELOP.
