Thursday Afternoon/Evening Forecast Discussion
We’ve made it to Thursday, but we have to deal with showers and thunderstorms. These storms were a bit stronger earlier today when they moved through central North Dakota. They will still bring some heavy rainfall to the area, but nothing severe is expected. Rainfall amounts will be around 0.25” for some. Because of this activity, temperatures may end up being slightly cooler than expected today.
The sky will clear for the early portion of the night, but clouds will increase after Midnight, and there will be some showers and storms rolling though during the night. Not expecting severe weather, but a few stronger storms are certainly possible.
After the storms move out Friday morning, the rest of the day should be mostly sunny, with highs into the 70s and 80s. The wind will be a bit breezy through the afternoon, but overall it will be a great summer afternoon.
Changes are in store for the upcoming weekend. A cold front will be moving through on Saturday, and will bring a threat for thunderstorms. Highs will still be in the 80s on Saturday, but after the front moves through, it will be breezy and cooler on Sunday, with highs in the 70s. High pressure builds in for Monday and Tuesday, so expect a lot of sunshine, and highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
Have a good evening!
