Warmer Week

After several days of cooler temperatures, the warmer temperatures that began yesterday will continue for most of this week.  Southern North Dakota will record noticeably warmer temperatures than northern portions of the state on a couple of the days this week, but overall the entire region will experience more above normal temperature days than below this week.  This will give the region crops an added boost of late season Growing Degree Days and in locations that need some more drying down time, the warmer temperatures will enhance that process as well.   This short term warmth will be replaced by cooler air next week, and it is that transition that will bring with it our best shot of rain later this week as well.
