Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Grand Forks ND
634 AM CDT WED JUL 27 2016

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 251 AM CDT Wed Jul 27 2016

The presence of the upper wave can be seen with the circulation
from radar imagery. General trend will be a slow progression
eastward of the associated showers. High pressure and a drier
airmass nudges into the region today. Expect a cooler and less
humid airmass along with dry weather. Guidance indicates activity
approaching from the west will dissipate before it reaches eastern
North Dakota.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Tuesday)
Issued at 251 AM CDT Wed Jul 27 2016

Thursday-Friday...Seasonable/dry airmass with low level ridging.
Very weak flow will lead to mostly dry weather and will not
include PoPs this period. With that said would not be surprised to
see an isolated storm (given evapotranspiration)...but
probability is very low for any one location.

Saturday-Tuesday...Models in general agreement again this run.
Surface high pressure retreats with return of southerly flow
bringing warmer air to the region...and a return to higher
humidity. Corresponding upper ridge amplification indicative of
return to much warmer temps. Highs are still looking to increase
into the upper 80s...and low 90s can be expected in the
southernmost part of the area. Otherwise...showers or storms can
not be ruled out through the period as a series of impulses
propagate through the flow.


.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Thursday morning)
Issued at 634 AM CDT Wed Jul 27 2016

Showers may affect KBJI through @14z...otherwise expect dry north
low level flow and VFR conditions through the period with light
