SEVERE WEATHER Safety Tips!
Holy-moly, it's getting scary out there!
With the warm weather comes severe weather season. Thunderstorms, lightning, high winds and tornadoes are all things we shouldn't take lightly. Here are a few safety tips from The National Weather Service that could just save your life!
Fire Danger Is High Today
Very low humidity and winds gusting up to 25 mph this afternoon/early evening will result in a high fire risk in areas north and west of the Twin Cities. Although the risk is slightly lower for southern MN into west-central WI, outdoor burning is not recommended anywhere today.
Heavy Snow Expected In Southern Minnesota, Iowa
Snow remains on track to move across Iowa, southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois this afternoon into early Saturday. Far southern Minnesota will be on the northern fringe, but will still pick up 1 to 4 inches this afternoon and evening.
