Although there may be an isolated shower or thunderstorm today as a cold from moves through the area, the main threat of rain looks to be next week in North Dakota and northern Minnesota. A storm system is expected to coming out of the Rockies this weekend and although South Dakota may get a bit of rain on Sunday, North Dakota looks to be staying dry until Monday. This means that planting should be able to continue through Sunday with few problems. The main question asked of me in the past couple of days is where and how much. Rain that is. My confidence is much lower than normal on placement at this time, but some delays in planting can be anticipated.
