Model consensus suggests decreasing chances for precipitation
across southwest North Dakota this afternoon. Surface high
pressure across Saskatchewan will move southeast with dry air at
low levels. Will keep a chance for showers through the afternoon
southwest and south central but by evening the chance of rain
ends.

Across the north, looks like a few sprinkles as the convective
temperatures is attained and some building cu forms.

Tonight skies will clear. On Monday skies will be sunny and
temperatures will moderate into the low to mid 60s.

Issued at 101 PM CDT Sun Apr 21 2019

Broad, slightly anticyclonic flow aloft will remain in place for
most of the extended, with a few weak troughs moving through the
more broader pattern. This should maintain dry weather through
Thursday with mild/seasonal temperatures into the mid 60s to
lower 70s. Scattered showers/thunderstorms will be possible Friday
night with the passage of a shortwave. Highs Thursday and Friday
mostly in the 60s, and 50s Saturday and Sunday.
