                    ABERDEEN IS            4 (LOW).

AN UPPER LEVEL LOW CONTINUES TO SPIN NEAR THE UPPER GREAT LAKES

EAST OF THE RED RIVER VALLEY WHILE THE REMAINDER OF THE AREA
SHOULD SEE PLENTY OF SUNSHINE. BREEZY NORTHWEST WINDS WILL RETURN
THIS AFTERNOON WITH GUSTS OF 25-35 KTS...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE
DEVILS LAKE BASIN. THIS AREA WILL ALSO SEE RH VALUES DIP INTO THE
25-30 PERCENT RANGE IN THE AFTERNOON.

DRY AND QUIET WEATHER WILL THEN CONTINUE THROUGH THE MAJORITY OF
