An area of rain showers with embedded thunderstorms across southwest North Dakota, was slowly pushing eastward Monday afternoon.

Expecting these showers and storms to weaken as they push east.


A surface cold front  will move into northwest ND Tuesday evening. This front may have a line of strong to severe storms attached to it, but there are uncertainties regarding the southern extent of storms.

If these storms materialize and the environmental setup becomes more favorable, there could be a significant damaging wind threat.


Expect quiet weather behind the departing cold front/upper low for

mid to late week as weak ridging and a slightly drier air mass build

A return to active weather may be in store for the upcoming

weekend.  There are also hints of a significant cool-down for the weekend, with highs returning to the 70s.
