Dorrell’s PM Forecast Update Wednesday 12/21


From the KX News Dakota Storm Center:

In the wake of last night’s clipper, we have been seeing clearing skies and a moderate to strong wind across the state. There is a Wind Advisory in effect for parts of Central & Eastern ND through this evening. Tonight, winds will calm back down and swing around to the Southwest and then the East by Friday night. High pressure will build over the Dakotas through Thursday & Friday with precip chances holding off for the weekend and temps staying well above the seasonable norm.

A major change up is expected this weekend with the approach and passing of our next winter snow system. It is still a little far out to nail down the snowfall forecast. However, significant accumulations will be possible as widespread snow is expected to last from Saturday night, through Christmas day and into Monday. The beginning of the work week will bring tapering snow chances, clearing skies and much colder temps. 

Tonight, will bring another round of breezy conditions with skies continuing to clear out. Lows in the teens with a few 20s and a West wind 5-15mph and continuing to calm. Chills will be in the teens and single digits.

Thursday will bring plenty of sunshine with in & out light light clouds and a cool feel. Highs in the 30s with a few 20s and a SW wind 5-15mph G20. Chills in the teens & 20s.

Thursday night, fair to partly cloudy skies and calming winds. It will feel chilly with temps in the teens and a light wind, swinging around to the SW 2-12mph G20.  

Friday, expect mostly sunny skies with increasing clouds late. Highs in the 20s & 30s with a West/NW wind 5-15mph G20.

Friday night, expect teens and a few single digits with increasing clouds and a chilly feel. Lows on either side of 10 with a N/E wind 2-12mph.
