Capture1_1496438013998.png
From the KX Storm Center:
 

There is a low pressure system & developing cold front that is moving into Western ND, as of 3:pm. A line of showers with a few thunderstorms (in advance of the line) will continue to move across the state, this afternoon & evening. There is a slight risk for severe weather for parts of Central & Eastern ND. Strong thunderstorms are not expected to develop along the front (over Western ND & moving East). However, in advance of this line (over Central & Eastern ND) dew points are high and will act as “thunderstorm fuel”. This means that further development is expected, especially in areas that have been heating up, this afternoon. A slight risk for severe weather means that scattered severe storms are possible. They will be short lived and/or not widespread with isolated intense storms possible. Reports of strong/damaging wind are expected with hail around 1″ and the occasional 2″ hail possible.

 
Across the state today, it has been sunny and breezy with temps well above average. Several spots on the map will warm into the 90s with many of us getting near and above record high temps. With continued sunshine more warming is expected for parts of Central & Eastern ND. These warmer areas with dew points in the 50s & 60s (even near 70 at Linton) are where the risk for severe weather is highest. As of this afternoon, only one warning has been issued. I will continue to track development of any and all storms across Western & Central ND, this afternoon & evening with updates online & on-air. 
Rain chances will fizzle out tonight. The next several days will bring more sunshine and unseasonably warm temps. daytime highs will be well into the 80s and it will be breezy through the weekend. The beginning of the work week will still be warm with our next system & chance of rain Monday/Tuesday. In the wake of early week rain chances, temps will fall slightly and into a more seasonable range. It will still be warm with daytime highs (still above average) in the upper 70s and lower 80s. There will be a few more chances for rain next week, but none of them look to bring significant rainfall totals. And, we need the rain. 
 
Tonight, partly cloudy with scattered showers & thunderstorms fizzling out and still a little breezy. Lows in the 50s & 60s with a SW/West wind 5-15mph, calming for some. 60% chance of rain.
 
Saturday, clearing early with plenty of sunshine and warm temps. Highs in the 80s with a few 90s and a West/NW wind 10-20mph G30.
 
Saturday night, mostly clear with temps slightly above average (48/73). Lows in the 50s with a NW/NE wind 2-10mph.
 
Sunday will bring another round of sunshine & warm temps. Highs in the 80s with a few 90s and a NE wind 5-15mph.
