We're heading into a busy holiday travel week with a blast.

Meteorology professor at St. Cloud State Bob Weisman says the National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for northwestern, west central, and south central Minnesota for Tuesday. The advisory lasts until 2  p.m. in parts of the state.

Areas affected the most by the windy conditions include the Red River Valley, Fergus Falls, Morris, Alexandria, Glenwood, Willmar, Redwood Falls, Olivia, Mankato, New Ulm, Fairmont, Jackson, and Albert Lea.

Northwest winds at 20-30 mph with gusts over 40 mph could push high profile vehicles a whole lane.

However, Weisman adds the rest of the Thanksgiving week forecast has few travel problems, except for the possibility of some fog and perhaps some light frozen precipitation during Thursday night.

A Sauk Rapids man is in the Benton County Jail after allegedly setting the business Pure Pleasure on fire Thursday afternoon.

Assistant Police Chief Jeff Oxton says at approximately 12:30 p.m. a man walked into the business, located in the 600 block of Highway 10 South. The store's clerk told officers the man had a gas can, poured gas on the inside of the store and then lit the store on fire.

The male clerk was able to leave the business safely. St. Cloud police found 32-year-old Cody Alexander Mann a few blocks from Pure Pleasure and arrested him without incident.

Mann is being held on first degree arson charges at the Benton County Jail. The St. Cloud Fire Department was able to put out the fire and ventilated the building.

The building is considered to be a total loss with the damage estimated to cost $380,000 due to loss of furniture and inventory and because of structural damage.
