Due to high winds, low humidity and dry conditions throughout much of the state, the National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for 47 Minnesota counties, including Wright County. Red Flag Warnings are issued when areas are experiencing critical weather conditions that are ideal for wildfires – including strong winds and low humidity. Burning is banned while Red Flag Warnings are in effect. The Red Flag Warning will expire at 8 p.m. tonight.
