FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR E ND...NW AND WC MN
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND FORKS ND
611 AM CDT SAT JUL 4 2015

.DISCUSSION...

THE VISIBILITY REDUCTIONS OWING TO SMOKE WILL SLOWLY IMPROVE BY
YOUR FOURTH OF JULY AFTERNOON...BUT A BIT OF A WRINKLE IN THE
FORECAST MAY ALLOW FOR A FEW SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO FORM
MAINLY OVER EASTERN NORTH DAKOTA BY MID OR LATE AFTERNOON. A MID
LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL COMBINE WITH SOME UNSTABLE AIR AT THE RIGHT
TIME TO INSTIGATE THIS WEATHER. SUNDAY WILL SEE PASSAGE OF A COLD
FRONT WITH THE RISK OF THUNDERSTORMS ACCOMPANYING THIS FEATURE.
SPEED AND PLACEMENT OF THIS FRONT WILL BE CRITICAL...IF IT HANGS
UP OVER MINNESOTA LAKES COUNTRY SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND
EVENING...COPIOUS RAINFALL AMOUNTS WILL BE POSSIBLE. IT IS MORE
LIKELY THAT HEAVIEST RAIN WILL FALL SOUTH OF THE FORECAST AREA
HOWEVER.  MEANWHILE...ENJOY OUR INDEPENDENCE !
