.DISCUSSION...

A FEW SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL AFFECT A PART OF WEST CENTRAL
MINNESOTA EARLY THIS MORNING, FOLLOWED BY DEVELOPING SUNSHINE WITH
BREEZY AND HUMID CONDITIONS INTO THE AFTERNOON. THERE WILL BE
ANOTHER CHANCE FOR STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS ARRIVING LATER IN THE
AFTERNOON PERSISTING THROUGH THE EVENING HOURS. THE MINNESOTA SIDE
OF THE RED RIVER VALLEY IS THE MOST LIKELY LOCATION FOR THIS
ACTIVITY, ALTHOUGH PARTS OF EASTERN NORTH DAKOTA COULD SEE A STORM
OR TWO AS WELL.

LOOK FOR HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE 80S TODAY WITH WARM WEATHER
ON THE AGENDA RIGHT THROUGH THE UPCOMING WEEK.
