No changes to the forecast from yesterday’s post.  90° + potential still exists from Wednesday through Saturday for all areas, with western North Dakota expected to have some 90° maximums this afternoon.

It is expected to be a “dry” heat today with Dew points mainly in the 50s to near 60°.

Summer may always bring an isolated storm, but besides that, Wednesday Night and later Saturday will be the two main threats of rain this week and Wednesday Night storm potential looks pretty spotty.  So hot and dry will sum up the next several days.  Cooler weather Sunday and especially Monday.
