The latest Forecast from the KX News Dakota Storm Center.
Winds today will not be as strong as yesterday. Temperatures will also be very similar, just around 32 degrees. In fact, this will continue into Friday as well. By Saturday, skies will start to get cloudy and temperatures will also be back in the teens for highs. The big story over the Christmas weekend is an increasing risk of a potential blizzard. There is a blizzard watch that will go in effect on Christmas Day, Sunday, at 6am CST for all of Central and Western North Dakota. The winter storm is developing off of the Northwest coast of the United States and will continue to move eastward by Christmas Day. Widespread snow is anticipated and blowing snow will be a major concern. Please use caution when driving and plan accordingly. After the winter storm leaves North Dakota, cold temperatures will be left behind for a few days and winds are going to be gusty at times. Conditions will start to warm up by midweek.
Today, highs today will be near 32 degrees across North Dakota and sunny skies. Winds southwest/west and light at 2-10 mph.
Saturday, highs in the mid 20s with a mostly cloudy sky. Winds east at 10-20 mph.
