Weather Blog
From the KX Storm Center:
After scatted showers/thunderstorms and a severe thunderstorm moved through the southern half of the state last night, it is not as hot today. Through the midday & afternoon, there have been a few hit & miss showers with in & out clouds. Afternoon temps are mainly in the 80s for Western & Central ND with a few 70s North & East. For many of us along and South of I-94, temps are 5-15 degrees cooler than this time yesterday. The good news is that rain chances are not over, yet. Showers and a few thunderstorms will remain in the forecast through the rest of this afternoon & evening. By tonight, another round of scatted rain is in the forecast. Rain chances will mainly be for the Northern half of the state with some activity possibly moving south. There is a Marginal (low risk of severe weather for parts of the state. This low risk of severe weather means that there is a chance that strong winds & hail could reach the minimum threshold (1″ hail & 58mph gusts) and become severe. 

A Marginal risk of severe weather means that isolated severe thunderstorms are possible. They will be limited in duration, coverage & intensity. Potential impacts include strong winds 40-60mph, Large hail up to 1″, frequent cloud to ground lightning and a low risk of tornadoes.

After tonight, rain chances will become a little more widespread and last through the morning and into the afternoon for much of our area.
