National Weather Service Grand Forks ND
639 PM CDT Thu Aug 10 2017

Issued at 623 PM CDT Thu Aug 10 2017

Will linger PoPs for a couple more hours across the southern areas
as widely scattered weak south moving showers are persisting. No
other changes needed with weak SFC high pressure moving across the
northern plains tonight.


.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Friday)
Issued at 305 PM CDT Thu Aug 10 2017

Any lingering shra across the south and east later this afternoon
should diminish as support shifts east and drier air continues to
work into the fa. Limited pops to before 00z. Otherwise high
pressure builds into the fa for quiet and relatively cool
conditions tonight and Friday.

.LONG TERM...(Friday night through Thursday)
Issued at 305 PM CDT Thu Aug 10 2017

High pressure will continue to be in control of the region to start
the weekend. As it slowly shifts off to the south and east, a decent
500 mb wave will pass through western North Dakota and down towards
southern Minnesota. The main area of precipitation with this feature
looks to pass just west and south of our area but the northern and
eastern fringes are likely to clip the southern portion of our area
Saturday night and into Sunday.

Dry weather will briefly return to start the new work week before
another system looks to bring better widespread chances for
precipitation Tuesday and Wednesday.

Highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s look to continue for the
weekend before warming up slightly next week (highs more into the
80s and mild lows in the 60s).&&

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Friday evening)
Issued at 623 PM CDT Thu Aug 10 2017
