416 AM CDT Mon Mar 27 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 404 AM CDT Mon Mar 27 2017

Melting snowpack, light winds and subsidence will lead to fog
across most of northern North Dakota this morning. Dense fog is
possible around Rugby, Rolette, Bottineau and surrounding areas.
Any fog that does develop should dissipate by noon.

Another weak upper level wave moves into western North Dakota this
afternoon. Some isolated showers may develop across western North
Dakota this afternoon, but confidence isn`t high enough at this
time to put it into the forecast.


.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 404 AM CDT Mon Mar 27 2017

Above normal temperatures will continue through the week with
readings mainly in the 50s.

There are a few chances for precipitation this week, but only with
very light amounts. The next chance for precip is Tuesday night
into Wednesday, however the latest model runs are rather low and
sparse with respect to QPF. There is perhaps a better chance for
precip later this week...Friday into Saturday.
