Although there was some light snow or flurries in the area yesterday and today, yet another snow storm missed North Dakota to our south. Another one will miss us in the next couple of days and we will see what may develop this weekend. I mention this because these storms missed us to the south, not unusual, but with the storm track to our south, that usually means colder than average temperatures in North Dakota and northern Minnesota. In fact, a week ago I figured this week would be colder than average, but instead more days than not will be above average. The main reason is the upper-level flow continues to be split with a weaker flow to our north keeping the coldest air well to our north.
