.DISCUSSION...

South winds will gust to 35 to 40 mph for a brief period late this
afternoon, mainly along and just east of the Red River. Dew points
in the 50s will allow relative humidity values in the mid 30s to
near 50 this afternoon but climb quickly this evening. Winds will
decrease during the evening hours although will stay in the 10 to
20 mph range with some gusts up to 25 mph. Mixing heights will
quickly decrease after sunset.

Tomorrow, cloudy and cooler conditions will keep afternoon
relative humidity values in the 40 to 70 percent range. Rain
showers will move across the area, with the best chances and
amounts across northwestern and west central Minnesota. Winds
will shift from the south to the southwest, then west. The
westerly winds will become rather breezy again by afternoon across
the Devils Lake Basin with 15 to 25 mph possible. Mixing and
smoke dispersal will be good even with some clouds and precip
hanging around. Cooler and breezy again from the southwest on
Sunday.
