The short term concern will be the fog for the rest of this evening and into the morning. Visibilities will be reduced to near a quarter of a mile. Several counties are in a dense fog advisory and this will expire at 6 am, the area may be expanded depending if conditions worsen, but should lift up as the night progresses. If there is no fog, a cloudy sky will be across North Dakota and lows in the 20s, close to average. Expect another warm day tomorrow as highs will be near average and in the 40s and 50s across the state. The warmer temperatures will stay in the southwest as a warm front pushes through. Depending on the warm front, and where it stays, warmer temperatures have the potential to be slightly further north than anticipated, it all depends on timing. A cold front will sweep through the state on Wednesday allowing for temperatures to dip back into the the 20s and 30s for highs. By the end of the week, winds will pick back up with gusts near 40 mph and sustained at 10-20 mph. The start of the next will once again be on the cooler side. An average high temperature for this time of year is in the lower 40s and lows around 20 degrees.
Sunday night, lows around the lower to mid 20s and winds east and light and a mostly to partly cloudy sky.
Monday, partly cloudy to start then sunny later in the day. Winds light and highs varying in the 40s and 50s across the state. Cooler in the north.
Monday night, a few clouds and lows in the mid 20s. Winds light.
Tuesday, a partly cloudy sky and winds west at 5-10 mph and highs in the mid 40s.
Tuesday night, lows around 20 degrees with winds west/northwest at 10-20 mph. Partly cloudy in the north and a few clouds in the south.
