.DISCUSSION...

A cold front shifting east of a line from Aberdeen to Huron around
daybreak, will shift exit our western Minnesota counties late this
morning. Winds will shift out of the west, and northwest behind this
boundary, becoming breezy. However, temperatures will be 15 to 20
degrees cooler than Friday, and relative humidity values should
remain above 30 percent. Winds will diminish this evening, before
becoming breezy out of the southwest Sunday afternoon. Expect
minimum relative humidity values of 20 to 30 percent Sunday
afternoon. A breezier day is in store for Monday, as gusty northwest
winds slide in behind another cold front.
