After a period of wetness in September into the first couple of days in October, much of North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota has now been dry for a week, or in some instances for over a week. This dry pattern looks to be continuing for this week as well. Meaning, that good harvest conditions are expected for several more days. It will be toward the middle of this month before we get into a different pattern and that change will be for the cooler air to move back into the northern plains and that transition will bring with it at least a couple of days of potential precipitation. October tends to flip flop and this month looks no different.
