NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND FORKS ND
319 PM CDT FRI MAY 22 2015

.DISCUSSION...
HIGHER THAN EXPECTED MAX TEMPS THIS AFTERNOON HAS BROUGHT MIN RHS
DOWN INTO THE MID 20S ACROSS THE AREA WITH A FEW LOCATIONS
BOTTOMING OUT AS LOW AS 20 PERCENT. ANOTHER DRY DAY IS EXPECTED
TOMORROW HOWEVER INCREASING CLOUDS IN THE SOUTH WILL LIMIT HEATING
AND SOUTHERLY WINDS...ALBEIT LIGHT...WILL INCREASE LOW LEVEL
MOISTURE. THESE FACTORS WILL KEEP MIN RHS IN THE SOUTH IN THE 40S
AND 50S WITH LOWER VALUES EXPECTED IN THE NORTHERN VALLEY AND NW
MN WHERE MORE SUN AND DRIER AIR REMAINS. MIN RHS HERE WILL BE IN
THE 30S AND UPR 20S. ANOTHER DRY DAY WITH MORE CLOUDS ON SUNDAY
WITH SHOWER CHANCES INCREASING IN THE AFTERNOON AND LIKELY BY
MONDAY.
