.DISCUSSION...

Low pressure from northwest Canada will slowly sink across the
eastern Dakotas and Minnesota through Saturday morning. While some
very light snow or even freezing drizzle can`t be ruled out over
eastern South Dakota and western Minnesota, little to no
precipitation is expected. Today will be another warm day, with
temperatures 10 to near 20 degrees above normal. Relative humidity
values will fall into the 30 percent range west of the Missouri
River, but west to southwest winds should stay around or less than
15 mph. Above normal temperatures and relatively light winds should
linger through the weekend.
