BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — After a cool early spring, North Dakota is heating up.

The National Weather Service says the temperature eclipsed 90 degrees in many North Dakota cities Monday. Bismarck tied a 1932 record for the date at 91 degrees.

Fargo had a high Monday of 93 degrees. That was 2 degrees short of that city's record for the date, but it was a warm-up of more than 40 degrees from the morning low.

The weather service forecast calls for a slight cool-down the rest of the week, with temperatures mostly in the 70s.

Thunderstorms also are possible later in the week. Thunderstorms that crossed southern North Dakota early Tuesday packed strong winds that knocked out electricity to half of Valley City for a time and blew over vehicles. No one was hurt.
