Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Grand Forks ND
941 AM CDT Mon Jul 17 2017

.SHORT TERM...(This afternoon through Tuesday)
Issued at 937 AM CDT Mon Jul 17 2017

Main adjustments were to add pops and to increase cloud cover to
account for band of shra/tsra moving into mainly east central ND.
No other changes.


.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Sunday)
Issued at 400 AM CDT Mon Jul 17 2017

Models agree with Thursday bringing the best chances for a dry day
across the area with surface high pressure building in. Thereafter,
models begin to diverge a bit more on any activity for the end of
the work week and through the weekend. As of now, late Friday and
into Saturday look like the best chances for precipitation before
possibly dry again Sunday but plenty of disagreement remains on
synoptic features.

Not much change in thermal profiles throughout the period with
temperatures right around average...highs in the low to mid 80s and
lows in the low 60s.
