National Weather Service Grand Forks ND
321 PM CDT Thu Sep 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Another breezy day is expected Friday for most zones as a low
pressure forms over the southern Red River Valley. Easterly winds
will be prominent over northwestern Minnesota while breezy
southerly winds gusting to 20-25 mph are expected in west-central
Minnesota. On the North Dakota side, northerly winds are generally
expected with highest gusts of around 25 mph in the Devils Lake
Basin. Winds gradually subside towards evening into tonight. With
a low pressure system forming over the region, rain chances will
be elevated Friday, especially north of Highway 2 during the day
and within west-central Minnesota towards the afternoon and
evening. Rain chances continue into the overnight. Best rain
chances shift into Minnesota as a cold front pushes through.
Winds Saturday will largely stay out of the north at around 10-15
mph with cool, cloudy conditions expected.
