12/4/14: Status Quo

No new changes foreseen from the discussion from yesterday at this point.  Northern North Dakota in particular would still have the highest probabilities of seeing some accumulating snow on Sunday, but it appears it would be very light.  That system will bring in some briefly cooler air on Monday, then it still looks like a very warm pattern for next week with highs at least 5-10 degrees or perhaps more above average.  No big storms on the horizon, so continued quiet.

There may be a few sprinkles or snow flurries in the air in south central and southwestern North Dakota this afternoon, it never takes much for some slick spots, but that is the type of system we may always get in this pattern, but the big event just is not foreseen in the near future (week to 10 days).
