There is no rain in the forecast which continues to make conditions dangerous for having a fire. The NWS has issued a warning to not attempt open burning due to the dry and windy conditions. A risk of wildfire is significant and the NWS asks people to heed local burn bans and to dispose of cigarette butts the right way, not on the ground.

Mississippi River is maintaining some water although it is forecast to drop from 14 feet Wednesday morning to 13.9 on Thursday and on into the weekend.
