AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
LOOKING AHEAD An UNSETTLED weather pattern will continue in our area. Today, precipitation will be in the form of scattered rain showers, lingering into early Friday. Much warmer and drier weather into the weekend with temperatures reaching 50+. The mild weather hangs on into next week.
THURSDAY & FRIDAY: Another storm tracks through the central plains and will bring the best chance of showers and thunder to our southern and eastern counties. Temperatures will be highly variable through the late week as warmer air tries to return from the south. Expect a chance at 40s to near 50 south, with 30s and 40s north. This means that a few areas up north could see periods of snowflakes while rain will be more prevalent to the south.
SATURDAY & SUNDAY: Cool to start on Saturday morning. A stormy weekend in the central plains to our south will continue to keep us on the unsettled pattern. Most of the rain, thunder chances will stay to the far south and east of the Red River valley. Cloudy skies for most, especially southern counties. Once again, it looks breezy both days as highs push into the 40s and even low 50s south. Sunday will bring very similar temperatures.
MONDAY: Cloudy with a chance of showers or a few rumbles of thunder far south and southeast. There will be a good chance of rain to the south and east of Fargo. It will likely stay dry to the north. Highs will still be in the 37 to 50 range for most areas.
TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy north to mostly cloudy south. Temperatures still hovering in the upper 30s north to near 50 south. Overall pattern looks dry.
