Low pressure will move thru central Canada Wednesday into early

Thursday. A cold front will move through Wednesday night and with

it a chance for light rain showers and in some areas east of the

Red River valley in northwestern Minnesota freezing rain. The

period of precipitation will be short lived.

with gusts to 50 mph at times into Thursday night from Devils Lake
