Showers and thunderstorms will move into the area later tonight around 10 pm or later. There is a slight risk for severe weather from southwestern Minnesota through northwestern North Dakota. This includes the cities of Aberdeen, Bismarck, and Minot. The main threat for the thunderstorms will be heavy rainfall, but large hail and damaging winds are also possible.

Extended Forecast 

We may have a few thundershowers stick around Thursday morning and early afternoon, but they should clear out and make for a nice late afternoon and evening. Friday will be partly cloudy with highs in the upper 70s/ lower 80s. There is another chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms this weekend. We will start to cool down a bit after Friday with highs in the lower 70s, then eventually in the upper 60s by Sunday and Monday. 

Have a wonderful day!
