National Weather Service Grand Forks ND
334 PM CDT Sun Oct 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A trough of low pressure moving through will bring scattered
showers tonight and into tomorrow. Winds will shift to the
northwest on the backside of the system, and by tomorrow could
become windy across eastern North Dakota, 20 to 30 mph with gusts
to around 40 mph in the afternoon. Mixing heights will be high
and and smoke dispersal very good.

Cooler weather will continue for the upcoming week, with Tuesday
being the dry day with northwest winds staying breezy. Another
low pressure system moving into the area will bring an increased
chance for rain or even snow during the Thursday and Friday time
frame. Winds will shift around to the southeast early Thursday
ahead of the system before flipping back to the northwest and
increasing again.
