.DISCUSSION...

Tuesday will start out cloudy and foggy, but it will become windy
by mid to late morning through the afternoon. Some sun is expected
to break out by afternoon, especially from southeast North Dakota up
toward the Grand Forks area. Meanwhile, a frontal boundary will push
into the Devils Lake to Jamestown corridor by 3 to 4 pm. This
boundary will help set off thunderstorms, some of which may be
severe. Thunderstorms that form in the Devils Lake to Jamestown
corridor will continue to push eastward tonight. The severe weather
threat should end around or just after midnight.
