Hello, happy weekend everybody! Who wants to enjoy some fun forecasting in North Dakota?
At 753PM, CT, Fargo was reporting a temperature of 50 degrees with clear skies. Typically this time of year, a clear sky would mean a freeze warning, but the light southerly flow across the region is indicative of the Red River Valley’s position on the western end of a strong ridge in the center of the country.
Lee troughing will only amplify the warming flow as the weekend continues. There is an upper level trough moving into the region for the beginning of next week, but the threat for rain will hold off until next week. Instead, Fargo will be left with a very pleasant weekend forecast, particularly for the first weekend in November.
