A cold front is projected to move across the state of North Dakota today. Along and ahead of the front, some showers and thunderstorms were were occurring.
Redevelopment of these storms are possible this afternoon, but generally in South Dakota and central and southern Minnesota, meaning a high percentage of the NDAWN mesonet sites should experience any moisture only during the morning hours.
Temperatures with enough sun may still get close to 90° in southern North Dakota with the northern portion of the state recording highs in the upper 70s. That cooler air will be working into the entire region tomorrow through the rest of the week.
There will be a strong storm on Thursday that looks to be impacting South Dakota through southern Minnesota. Right now only locations near the ND/SD border may be impacted but the cloud cover with that storm in the southern portion of the state into west central Minnesota will probably suppress temperatures. But after today, generally 70s expected for maximums for the following few days. If the Thursday rain misses most of the state as expected, then Saturday will more than likely be the next rain threat for North Dakota into northwestern Minnesota.
