ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning again today (Thursday) for critical fire conditions in parts of Minnesota.

The warning is in effect from noon until 7 pm for areas generally south and west of a Benson to Olivia to Mankato line.

Relative humidity levels will fall to between 20 and 25 percent and coupled with northwest winds gusting to 35 miles per hour, will create conditions that are ripe for wildfires.

It's the second straight day a Red Flag Warning has been posted for that part of Minnesota.
