From the KX Storm Center:
Scattered rain & thunderstorms will continue to move through Western & Central ND this afternoon. Rain chances will taper off this evening & tonight and a few of these storms will become strong, possibly producing some hail and strong winds. An isolated storm or two could become severe and we are tracking development from the KX Storm Center. If any storms do become severe, we will let everyone know online, on air and via social media. There were a few reports of hail this afternoon and with more possible. So, stay Weather Aware. 
A low pressure system and cold front will continue to move through the state, tonight. Rain chances will taper off, followed by clearing & winds becoming breezy. By Friday morning, a few lingering showers will be possible. As we wrap up the work week, it will become breezy & sunny with only a few isolated areas of rain through most of the weekend. Temperatures will start to warm up too. Highs will be in the 70s Friday, then warm through the 80s Saturday & Sunday. By Monday/Tuesday a warm front will approach & move through the Dakotas, bring highs into the 90s. Next week it will be hot with low rain chances through the 7day planner, after tonight. 
The new drought monitor is out and conditions continue to worsen. Much of Western & Central ND have burn restrictions/bans in effect until conditions improve and that doesn’t look good through the 7day Outlook or even a little further down the road. Our moisture deficit  is ranging between 2.20″ – 6.15″ below average for this time of the year. Today’s rain will help out a little, but we need a lot more before this drought can come to an end. On average we should have a (year to date) total of +/- 8″. It is more like 2″-4″ for the year, right now. 

After rain chances clear out tonight, a little ridging is expected with more sunshine for the weekend and low rain chances. Monday/Tuesday, a warm front will not bring much in the way of rain. However more sunshine & even hotter temps are expected in its wake. 

Tonight, continued showers with a few thunderstorms will fizzle out. Lows in the 40s & 50s with a West/NW wind 5-15mph G20. 30% chance of rain. 30% chance of rain.
 
Friday, mostly cloudy early with tapering rain chances followed by clearing. More sunshine & warming temps are on the way. Highs in the 60s & 70s with a NW wind 10-20mph. 10% chance of AM rain.
 
Friday night, partly cloudy and a little cool with in & out clouds. Lows in the 40s & 50s with a NE/SW wind calming to 2-10mph.
 
Saturday, mostly sunny and warming up. Highs in the 80s with a few 70s and a SW/NW wind 5-15mph G20.
