Red Flag Warning Today 08 Oct 12

Nearly the entire lower half of the state will be under a Red Flag Warning this (MON) afternoon. The National Weather Service says conditions are ripe for fires southward of a line from Olivia to Hutchinson to the Twin Cities. Much of the state will be in the 60′s today, but low humidity and gusty winds means that the chance of fires is greatly increased. Temps will be dropping into the 40′s and 50′s throughout the rest of the week.
