LOOKING AHEAD: We will see partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies for the next few days as most of us stay mainly dry. Temperatures will be near normal for this time of year with comfortable humidity levels. We will see an increase in the storm chances as we round out the weekend and start next week. Temperatures and humidity levels will also rise as we finish out the 7-day forecast.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY: Seasonable weather conditions will continue into late-week. Expect partly cloudy skies with hit and miss thunderstorm chances both days, mainly to the south and west of the Red River Valley. Temperatures both days will be in the lower 70s north and the lower 80s south.
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY: South winds will increase moisture and heat will begin to build as well. Saturday will bring highs in the upper 70s northeast to mid 80s southwest. Scattered t-storms are possible, mainly later in the day. Sunday looks even warmer with increasingly gusty south wind. Temperatures will reach the mid to upper 80s west of the Red River and low to mid 80s east. There will be a chance of strong t-storms as a cold front approaches from the west.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY: South wind will continue bringing the heat and humidity into the region through the early week as forecast models suggest the cold front stalls to the west of the Valley. There will continue to be scattered t-storm chances as well. High temperatures will range from the mid-80s north to the low 90s south for this timeframe. Any storms that form in this humid environment could be strong to severe with locally heavy rainfall.
WEDNESDAY: We will still keep the chance of showers and t-storms in the forecast through mid-week. Otherwise the area will see partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will be a couple of degrees cooler with less humidity. Highs will be in the mid-70s north and the mid-80s south.
