.DISCUSSION...

WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWER ACTIVITY IS POSSIBLE THIS EVENING ALONG
WITH A CHANCE OF THUNDER FROM THE DEVILS LAKE BASIN THROUGH
EXTREME NORTHWEST MINNESOTA.  WE ARE LOOKING AT A MAINLY DRY DAY
FOR FRIDAY...EXCEPT FOR THAT DEVILS LAKE AREA WHERE A SURFACE
TROUGH SHOULD PRODUCE SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. AFTER
THAT...A MORE COMPLEX LOW PRESSURE AREA WILL CREEP THIS WAY FROM
THE SOUTH AND WEST...HOLDING BACK THE GREATEST CHANCE FOR
PRECIPITATION TO SATURDAY NIGHT. WINDS SHOULD NOT EXCEED 15 MPH
DURING THIS TIME FRAME...WITH LINGERING MOISTURE MAKING FOR PRETTY
HIGH AFTERNOON HUMIDITY MINIMA.
