In western North Dakota it started on Sunday, in eastern North Dakota into northwestern Minnesota it was yesterday, but finally some spring weather has moved into the region.  Temperatures should be at or above normal the entire week.  There may be a sprinkle or an isolated shower in the area today, a better chance of rain tomorrow, especially across northern North Dakota, but overall, most of you probably won’t see much moisture this week until Friday afternoon or the weekend.  That next bigger threat of rain looks to be widespread and locally heavy.  1-2” of rain with localized higher totals will be possible because the storm looks to be a slow mover.
