.DISCUSSION...

A cold front will begin moving southward through northeastern
North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota today. There will be a
sharp temperature difference and wind shift between locations
ahead of and behind the cold front. The front is expected to
advance to the vicinity of U.S. Highway 2 by mid morning and Interstate
94 by early evening. Locations ahead (south) of the front will
see continued westerly winds and temperatures in the 60s with good
mixing and afternoon minimum humidity values around 30 percent.
Locations behind (north) of the front will see a shift to north
winds with afternoon minimum humidity values around 60 percent,
along with a chance for precipitation. The cold front will sink
southward through today and tonight and will stall out near the
South Dakota border Sunday. Chances for precipitation are expected
along and north of the front throughout the weekend. The best
chances for widespread precipitation will be Monday and Monday
night as the main surface system moves through South Dakota.
