Sunday was much warmer than on Saturday! In most areas warmer by around 10-20 degrees, along with mainly sunny skies. This is due to a high pressure system that is within the area, bringing in calm and Fall like conditions. This trend will continue on Monday, but then conditions take a turn on Tuesday. As of now, there is a slight to marginal risk of severe weather, sticking mainly to the central part of the state. Hail and damaging winds are to be the biggest threat at this time. Skies will start to clear on Wednesday and Thursday, as another high pressure comes through, but then the last half of the week will have more widespread rain showers throughout North Dakota. For temperatures this entire week, it will range. Monday will be the warmest, in the 70s, then sweeping down in to the upper 60s mid week then it will continue to cool down by the weekend to near 60 degrees. An average for this time of year is near 70 degrees for a high and in the mid 40s for a low.
