Only a couple weekends ago, we got inundated with over one foot of snow. Today, Minnesota is under a fire weather watch.
According to the National Weather Service, eastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin are under a fire weather watch due to high winds and low humidity.
Twin Cities counties may see winds of 15 to 20 miles per hour, possibly up to 30 miles per hour, Sunday afternoon from 1 to 7 p.m., the Star Tribune reports. Humidity levels will drop below 25 percent.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says debris burning causes 1 in 4 wildfires in our state, and more than half of all acres burned in 2017 resulted from arson fires. Their point? People are the top reason fires are caused, so please just don't burn stuff and use some common sense. Read more about Minnesota wildfire statistics here.
