A passing low pressure system to our SW will bring in a chance of snow for parts of SW North Dakota for the overnight hours. Afterward, high pressure sets in along with a northwest wind, drawing in the cooler temperatures for much of this week. The main story for the first half of this week will be, in fact, the wind chills. There is a wind chill advisory in effect for parts of the state tonight — expect wind chills as low as 30 degrees below zero — with lows in the single digits below zero. The last half of the week may hold a chance of snow for much of ND. The recent models have shifted higher snow amounts further towards the southwest, but this will still likely change between now and then. If snow does occur it will be steered into ND on Wednesday night and then finally moving out by Friday morning. Overall, much of this week will continue to see below average temperatures. An average high is in the lower to mid 20s and lows around zero degrees.
Sunday night, light snow for the southwest region, otherwise, a partly cloudy sky. Winds southwest/northwest at 5-10 mph and lows -5 to -10 degrees with a wind chill as lows as -30.
Monday, a partly cloudy sky to a few clouds with a northwest wind at 5-15 mph. Highs around 10 degrees.
Monday night, lows around -10 degrees and a few clouds. Winds northwest/south and light.
Tuesday, a partly cloudy sky with winds south/northwest at 1-8 mph and highs in the teens.
Tuesday night, winds northwest and light at 1-8 mph and lows -10 to -20 degrees.
