Warm Halloween

Halloween was quite warm if you live in southern North Dakota, but not so warm across the northern portion of the state.  An area of low pressure tracked almost right through central North Dakota yesterday, meaning the northern half of the state recorded temperatures in the 40s, which is very typical of the time of year, but the southern portion of the state into west central Minnesota had a mild temperatures surge north from the southern plains.  Some parts of the South Dakota record maximums around 80 and southern ND was near 70.  Although yesterday will likely be the highest temperature this area records this week, well above average temperatures are expected for the next several days.
