WORTHINGTON – The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for this afternoon for southwest Minnesota and east central South Dakota. High fire danger is expected this afternoon, however, very high fire danger is expected along and south of the Interstate 90 corridor due to strong winds and low humidity. Outdoor burning is not recommended.
While snow melt has left the ground somewhat saturated and moist, abundant prairie grass and brush is very dry and conducive to burning.
Very high to extreme fire danger is again likely on Sunday afternoon.
