.DISCUSSION...

LOOK FOR TEMPERATURES TO WARM AGAIN ON TUESDAY BUT RELATIVE
HUMIDITY VALUES WILL NOT GET THAT LOW DUE TO SOME INCREASE IN LOW
LEVEL MOISTURE DURING THIS TIME. LOOK FOR A SOUTH WIND AHEAD OF A
COLD FRONT WHICH WILL MOVE INTO THE DEVILS LAKE BASIN EARLY IN THE
AFTERNOON AND REACH THE RED RIVER VALLEY LATE AFTERNOON AND THEN
CONTINUE MOVING EAST THROUGH NORTHWESTERN AND WEST CENTRAL
MINNESOTA TUESDAY EVENING. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO
DEVELOP ALONG THE FRONT IN THE RED RIVER VALLEY AND THEN INCREASE
IN COVERAGE IN THE EVENING AS IT MOVES EAST. WIDESPREAD HEAVY
RAINS ARE NOT ANTICIPATED DUE TO THE FAST MOVEMENT OF THE FRONT
AND UNCERTAINTY IN THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE.

THE REST OF THE WEEK WILL FEATURE TEMPERATURES NEAR NORMAL FOR
LATE AUGUST.
