Bismarck, North Dakota

Today, we head off to celebrate our nation’s birthday in the capital of North Dakota! Let’s find out how the rest of the workweek is going to go… that is if anybody didn’t take a couple days vacation and turn it into a 5-day weekend.

At 1052pm CDT, the temperature at Bismarck, ND was 62 degrees under fair skies. An area of low pressure continues to lift into Ontario with a trailing cold front working its way through the Upper Midwest. High pressure is settling in nicely behind it over the Dakotas, bringing in much cooler air that had been seen over the region earlier in the week. This high pressure sticks around through Thursday before shifting towards the Great Lakes on Friday. There’s a slight chance of some morning activity in the region, but it should stay south of Bismarck before clearing out for the rest of the day.
