Hard to believe that while the Red River of the North remains above major flood stage, portions of central and east central Minnesota are on the dry side.
On both Saturday and Sunday afternoon the low dew points, in the upper teens, resulted in relative humidity readings of 15 to 20 percent in eastern Minnesota. The southeast winds gusting to 20 mph at times also added to the drying process. Until the spring green up takes hold, expect a high grassland fire threat to continue through much of the work week.
Clouds give way to sunshine for your Tuesday and Wednesday.
Cub fans, the home opener at Wrigley Field looks to be a little damp!
