.DISCUSSION...
TODAYS WEATHER WILL BE SIMILAR TO THURSDAY...WITH SOME MINOR
CHANGES. LOOKS LIKE DRIER AIR WILL CONTINUE TO WORK SOUTH FROM
CANADA AND GIVE MORE SUNSHINE AND THE PRESSURE GRADIENT IS A BIT
LIGHTER TODAY MEANING A BIT LESS EAST TO NORTHEASTERLY WIND.
TEMPERATURES AND RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES LOOK SIMILAR THOUGH WITH
LOWEST HUMIDITIES IN THE MID TO UPPER 20 PCT RANGE IN
NORTHEASTERN NORTH DAKOTA CLOSER TO HIGH PRESSURE IN MANITOBA
WHILE HUMIDITIES LOWER INTO THE MID 30 PERCENT RANGE IN WEST
CENTRAL MINNESOTA.

THE THEME FOR THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS (OR EVEN LONGER) IS DRY WEATHER
AS THE FORECAST HAS NO CHANCE FOR RAIN THROUGH NEXT FRIDAY.
SATURDAY WILL SEE A BIT MORE EAST-NORTHEAST WIND AGAIN AS LOW
PRESSURE MOVES NORTH INTO SOUTHERN NEBRASKA. THEN LIGHTER WINDS
SUNDAY AND MONDAY. TEMPERATURES STAYING ABOUT THE SAME FOR HIGHS
DAY TO DAY.
