AREA WEATHER OUTLOOK:
SUMMARY: Gusty northwest winds continue to bring cool air into the region. This flow will continue through the early half of the workweek, but decrease in strength each day. Morning temperatures will be cold enough for FROST across our western counties Tuesday morning, and that chill spreads east by Wednesday morning. Gradual warming will take place throughout the week with an overall dry pattern evolving. Although we could see spotty showers west on Saturday, late Sunday into Monday will bring our next chance of rainfall.
TUESDAY: After a cool start to the day, expect mostly sunny skies in Fargo. More clouds east. Winds will crank up from the northwest once again, with gusts over 20 mph possible. Afternoon highs will reach the 60s west & south, 50s in NW MN.
WEDNESDAY: Morning FROST likely for much of the region, as winds decrease. Wind will remain from the north, but only at 5-15 mph for the day. This will allow for temperatures to be just a pinch warmer in the afternoon. Highs will hit the low 60s north to near 70 south.
THURSDAY: South wind returns with sunny skies. There will be some locations in the south and east that get back into the 70s for highs! For northwest Minnesota, mid 60s will be the rule.
FRIDAY: Increasing south wind in western counties with temperatures that will warm into the 70s there. East of the Red River, there will be less wind with highs in the mid-60s.
SATURDAY: Partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers or thundershowers in our western-most counties. Gusty winds west of the Red River. Highs west of the Red River will hit the 70-77 range with Minnesota seeing temperatures rise into the 65-70 range.
SUNDAY: Still cloudy for most areas with winds out of the south again. Expect isolated shower chances, especially for our western counties again. Temperatures will peak near 70-77 for most areas.
MONDAY: Mostly cloudy with a better chance of showers or thunderstorms as a slow moving low moves over the region. Wind will become northwesterly or westerly with much cooler temperatures north of I-94. Highs will be in the low 60s north to 65 south.
