Conditions are certainly cool for this time of year as the high temperatures are remaining below average, this will go for the entire week. In the mean time, there is a low pressure system that is moving through South Dakota, but this will be bringing widespread rain showers. Rain totals starting this evening and through tomorrow will likely be between 0.5-1 inches for much of western and central North Dakota. Some areas locally can receive upwards of two inches in the southeast. This will be a good soaking rainfall as much of the state is still seeing drought conditions. The showers will move out by Sunday evening and we will be left will cloudy skies. The first half of the week will continue to see cloudy skies, then eventually a clearing will start to take shape into Thursday and Friday, but the temperatures remain near 60 degrees. An average high for mid to late September is in the upper 60s and lows in the lower 40s.
