.DISCUSSION...

Winds will remain the main story this week, although the
strongest winds will stay in the Red River Valley and eastern
North Dakota. Only Wednesday looks like a lower wind day this
week. Any light rain today will bring minimal rainfall amounts.
Temperatures will take a tumble downward after Wednesday. This
could lead to the potential for some light snow Wednesday night
through Thursday night, and single digit wind chills by sunrise
Friday morning.
