LOOKING AHEAD: Another pleasant one today with some stronger thunderstorms this morning west of Jamestown. South winds will begin increasing temperature, humidity and storm chances into the Labor Day weekend.
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY: A shift in wind direction back to southerly will increase the heat and humidity for midweek. Temperatures will peak just above seasonal averages for most. Up north, expect the mid-70s to the mid-80s south. Mostly sunny skies should prevail for almost everyone.
FRIDAY: Gusty south wind will develop ahead of our next weather-making system. There will be increasing clouds for our western counties. High temperatures will range from the mid to upper 80s west of the Red River to the mid to upper 70s in northwest Minnesota. There will be a slight chance of late thunderstorms in central North Dakota that could meander into the Valley late.
SATURDAY: Saturday will likely be the most summer-like day of the holiday weekend. Expect gusty south winds, especially east as a cold front approaches from the west. There will be a good chance of showers and thunderstorms moving into our western counties in eastern North Dakota as we progress through our Saturday. The timing of this system is still in question, but be prepared for a chance of strong thunderstorms. Highs will be in the 80s for many to start the weekend.
SUNDAY: Sunday will be mostly cloudy with passing showers and thunderstorms and a northwest wind. There will be a chance of a strong t-storm or two from the Valley into western Minnesota. Temperatures will be noticeably cooler our west with highs near 70. From the Red River and points east the temperatures will be in the mid and even upper 70s.
MONDAY: Cool north winds with persistent clouds and spotty showers and thundershowers, especially for our northern and eastern counties. Highs will struggle to make it out of the 60s for many areas in northern Minnesota. For Fargo and points south, we will only make it to the low to mid 70s!
TUESDAY: Partly cloudy and cool. Light wind and temperatures peaking in the low 60s to low 70s region-wide. Quite cool for this time of the year.
