It’s going to be a hot Independence Day for western North Dakota, although it will not be quite as hot as it was yesterday. Northerly winds are helping to keep temperatures down a little, but it will still be in the 90s, especially down to the south where the possibility of triple digits cannot be ruled out.
However, through the overnight on Sunday into Monday, a few isolated showers will be possible, mainly south of I-94, with some increasing cloud cover. Temperatures will still be fairly warm, due to the best chances for widespread cloud cover along with some showers and thunderstorms coming later Monday night.
These appear to be a bit more widespread, which will coat more area with some much-needed rainfall as opposed to the isolated showers and thunderstorms we’ve had.
These showers will also bring the temperatures down to much more comfortable levels, with some areas off to the northeast struggling to get out of the 60s. Temperatures will remain around average for the week, with a few chances for rainfall mixed in.
