National Weather Service Advises Against Recreational Fires Today

Due to predicted low humidity and high wind gusts up to 35–40 miles per hour, the National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Red Flag Warning in parts of Minnesota, including the Twin Cities. This means recreational fires are not advised as the humidity and winds make it very easy for a recreational fire to spread quickly.

Additionally, Golden Valley’s recreational fire guidelines do not allow recreational fires anytime wind speeds are greater than 10 mph.

The Red Flag Warning is in effect until 6 pm this evening.
