.DISCUSSION...

A SURFACE TROUGH WILL MOVE INTO NORTH CENTRAL MINNESOTA WHILE THE
RIDGE AXIS OF A CANADIAN HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM EXTENDS INTO CENTRAL
NORTH DAKOTA TONIGHT.  THIS WILL GENERALLY BRING DRY WEATHER WITH
LIGHT WINDS TODAY AND TOMORROW, BEFORE SOUTHEASTERLY WINDS INCREASE
IN THE DEVILS LAKE BASIN ON WEDNESDAY.  THERE IS A CHANCE FOR SOME
ISOLATED STORMS THIS MORNING, HOWEVER THE BETTER CHANCE WILL BE
SCATTERED ACTIVITY FROM WADENA THROUGH ELBOW LAKE LATE THIS AFTERNOON.
