There will be showers, but they will only result in minor accumulations, if any at all. It will be similar to the weather we experienced yesterday.
However, there are potential changes in the longer term, which is great news. There is a higher probability of a long stretch of temperatures in the 50s on the way, but this won’t happen until the second half of the weekend. Now let’s take a look at what’s happening throughout the region. There isn’t a major threat of precipitation for the Northern Plains, but for the Southern Plains, there are showers and thunderstorms due to subtropical moisture moving in, which is good news considering the dry spell they have had.
For our area, there are plenty of clouds and a few snow showers. This is because of a system in Southern Canada that is providing weak disturbances moving into the Northern United States.
We have a blanket of cloud cover across the state, and there is a continuing threat of snow showers. Currently, there are snow showers in the Bismarck area and a few flurries in Grand Forks and Fargo.
However, accumulations will be light and temperatures are not too bad, ranging from the low to mid-30s for most areas. Moving into the afternoon, we can expect sustained winds of around 20 mph, possibly reaching 30 mph. Looking ahead to the next three days, the weather will improve with more sunshine. Tomorrow, for Veterans Day observed and the deer gun opener, highs will be near 40 degrees.
Saturday will be milder but still a bit chilly, with highs in the 40s. However, Sunday will be windy, with West Winds of 20-35 mph, but it marks the beginning of a longer stretch of temperatures in the mid-50s.
Now let’s take a closer look at the cloud cover and scattered showers remaining for the remainder of today. Temperatures will remain in the 30s, possibly reaching 40 in some areas.
Tonight, temperatures will drop to the teens or low 20s for most areas, with a chance of a morning flurry in Eastern North Dakota. On Friday, there will be more sunshine than today, although not completely sunny. The wind direction will change to the southeast, with speeds of 10-15 mph. Looking.
