A large and powerful upper-level low remains nearly stationary over the western Great Lakes, keeping northwest wind as the major factor in our weather for another day. Gusts to above 50mph are possible again today, leading to extreme to catastrophic grassland fire spread conditions. Any fire that starts is likely to move rapidly southeast and be nearly impossible to control.

The wind will be less tomorrow and shift around to the south on Saturday as it calms more, but with dry conditions continuing, fire risks will be a concern through the weekend.
