Yankton County has issued a burn ban for the remainder of the week as dry, windy weather is expected to create hazardous fire conditions.

A red flag warning has been posted for southeast South Dakota for today (Wednesday) by the National Weather Service. Low humidity and winds possibly gusting up to 40-50 miles per hour are expected.

Similar conditions are expected Thursday, followed by cooler and drier weather heading into the weekend.
