Good afternoon! Today has brought more sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures compared to Monday. We’ve had a mostly clear to partly cloudy sky with a light wind out of the west. A band of light showers are moving through southwestern ND and will bring a chance for a few showers in the valley this afternoon, but almost everywhere else will remain dry. 


Highs: 67°F-71°F

Wind: W 5-10 


Tonight will be partly cloudy to mostly clear with low temperatures slightly warmer than this morning. The wind will be light as the center of the high pressure system will sit right over us overnight. 

Lows: 48°F-52°F

Wind: Light & Variable 


Tomorrow is shaping up to be a gorgeous day with temperatures in the 70s. Expect a mostly sunny sky with a light wind. Wednesday will be a perfect day to make some outdoor plans. 

Extended Forecast 

Highs will continue to increase as we move through the week and many of us will be near 80° by Thursday and Friday. Our next best chance for rain looks to be Friday evening into Saturday and possibly Sunday this weekend. The timing could change on these bands of rainfall, and it will be something to monitor as we get closer to those days. I don’t see this being a washout weekend. We should have a fair amount of time to enjoy the outdoors as well. Temperatures this weekend will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s. 

Have a wonderful day!  -Meteorologist Kellen Peters
