Wednesday Afternoon/Evening Forecast Discussion
Good Afternoon! The widespread cloud cover continues this afternoon, but it is thin, so we are still seeing some sunshine. Temperatures have warmed into the 70s, and I am still expecting highs into the upper 70s and lower 80s. There remains a slight risk of severe weather across parts of the area, including Fargo, Jamestown, Devils Lake, and Fergus Falls. The best timing for thunderstorms to develop and move into the area is late this evening, and into tonight. Large hail and damaging wind gusts are the main threats, but an isolated tornado is also possible.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue through the night. Heavy rainfall is possible. Lows will be in the lower to middle 60s, with an east wind at 10-25 mph. A few isolated thunderstorms will again be possible on Thursday. Highs will be in the middle to upper 70s, with an east wind at 10-25 mph.
Have any big weekend plans? Well good news!! The weather is shaping up to be great! Expecting a mix of clouds and sunshine, with highs into the 80s. The pleasant weather will continue for the start of the next work week.
Have a great day!
