This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central and
southern Minnesota, and west central Wisconsin.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Hot, dry, and breezy conditions will develop Friday afternoon.
These elevated fire weather conditions will give any fire the
potential to quickly spread.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

Confidence is increasing for having another heat wave, including
the risk of daily record high temperatures Sunday and Labor Day.
Temperatures will be in the 90s, but the humidity will be lower
than the last heat wave, which means heat indices will be close
to the air temperature.

The dry, hot, and breezy conditions will lead to elevated fire
weather concerns through Labor Day as well.
