Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Bismarck ND
152 PM CDT Tue May 16 2017

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Wednesday)
Issued at 132 PM CDT Tue May 16 2017

Showers and thunderstorms have come to an end across western and
central North Dakota. A few isolated showers are possible again tonight
across southern North Dakota with an upper level jet remaining
nearby, but the majority of the area will remain dry.

Cool northeast winds will bring in upper 30s and low 40s
temperatures tonight.

Wednesday looks dry and breezy as another system develops across
the Central Plains and the pressure gradient steepens.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday night through Tuesday)
Issued at 132 PM CDT Tue May 16 2017

Cool and dry through the rest of the week. Latest model runs keep
the main storm track south of North Dakota through the week. This
will keep all but extreme southern North Dakota free from any
precipitation chances. Much colder air from Canada will move in
and we`ll likely see frost two or three nights this week as
overnight lows dip in the low 30s. Temperatures should moderate
back into the 40s for lows and 60s for highs by the end of the
weekend.
