Saturday’s Weather 3/4


Temperatures today were above average, in the 40s and 50s, across the state and there is a warm front stretching from north central North Dakota to near Aberdeen, South Dakota. This is enabling warm temperatures into the upper 50s and even a few 60s to the west of the front.
There is a low pressure system in the eastern Pacific Ocean that will come across the northwest and then through the northern plains late Sunday night. This will bring in a chance of snow as the system passes through. Depending on how warm the temperatures will be, there is a possibility of mixed precipitation. Temperatures will be near the freezing mark or a few degrees above. The pressure gradient will also be strong across the region. This means that the winds will be breezy. They will be sustained at 20-30 mph from the W/NW and with gusts of 40 mph and slightly stronger. Blowing snow will likely be a concern. Associated with this system is a few inches of snow. At this time, areas along highway 2 and to the north are in the 3-5 inch range and the farther south, the snow amounts decrease and so does the chance of snow. The south is more likely to have a mix of rain, sleet, and snow. Keep in mind that this will change between now and then as the forecast models do change. Once the system passes, temperatures will be in the 20s and 30s for highs and the skies will be cloudy.

Tonight, lows in the mid 20s with more clouds in the northern region rather than the southern. Winds will be southeast/south at 1-8 mph.

Sunday, cloudy in the north and partly cloudy in the southern region. Winds to be light, south/southeast at 1-8 mph. Daytime highs to be near the mid 40s, southern areas can see 50 degrees.

Sunday night, a rain and snow mix moves in in the early AM hours along with temperatures near freezing. Winds southeast at 1-8 mph. Chance of precipitation 40%.

Monday, winds will pick up through the day and be sustained at 20-30 mph and from the west/northwest. Gusts can occasionally reach 40 mph. AM snow is also likely at 50%.

Monday night, a partly cloudy sky along with strong winds, near 20-30 mph and breezy throughout the day. Lows to be in the teens.
