From the KX Storm Center:
 
After a sunny start to the work week, it has been heating up today with temps topping out in the 80s & 90s. It has been breezy and dry, but changes are on the way. The warmer it gets before clouds & rain move in, the more of a risk for some thunderstorms to become severe this evening & tonight. A low pressure system over Eastern MT will continue to develop as it moves over the Dakotas, this afternoon & evening. With plenty of warming today, dew points will climb through the 50s and into the 60s across much of Central & parts of Western ND. So, this developing low pressure system will bring a risk of severe weather. We are already in AWARE mode. This means that there is a potential for severe weather (from late this afternoon through tonight). Also, the Storm Prediction Center has most of the state under a Marginal (low) risk for severe weather. The main window for severe weather will be as this low & cold front move through the Dakotas (5pm to Midnight). 
 
A Marginal risk for severe weather means that Isolated severe thunderstorms will be possible. They will be limited in duration, coverage & intensity. Winds 40-60mph with hail up to 1″ possible and a low risk for tornadoes.
 
We will stay in aware mode until the threat is over (Midnight -2am). If any warnings are issued for Western & Central ND we will go into ALERT mode. So, stay tuned to KX News on air, on social media and online at myndnow.com for any changes and to stay ahead of the storm.

After this first round of rain, expect more sunshine Wednesday with calming winds through Wednesday night. A few scattered showers & thunderstorms are possible tomorrow afternoon, but there is no risk for severe weather at this time. 
Thursday/Friday will bring more rain chances and through the rest of the work week some much needed rainfall is expected for parts of the state.
The 4th of July weekend will bring warming temps with even more chances for rain. They include; scattered rain ending on Friday/Friday night and a few more showers/thunderstorms possible Sunday night/Monday. The main headlines for our 4th of July weekend are warming temps & winds becoming breezy again.
 
Tonight, partly to mostly cloudy with scattered rain & thunderstorms and a Marginal to Slight risk of severe weather. Lows in the 50s & 60s with a South/NW wind 5-15mph G25. 60% chance of rain.
