Many parts of northeastern North Dakota into northwestern Minnesota has recorded excessive rain this season. But most of the rest of the region has been either receiving near normal or below average rainfall. There will be at least some scattered precipitation midweek, but otherwise, the main rain opportunities would be next week after Independence Day. Although much of this week looks dry, it also does not look very warm either with mainly 70s foreseen. This means the dry areas will have below average evaporation potential this week, but on a negative note, the wet areas will be slow to dry off as well.
