Today we visit Fargo! Will the residents of this North Dakota city have a pleasant weekend or will summer hit them with a ferocity that it’s seems to be dealing most of the Central US right now. Let’s take a look!
At 353pm CDT, the temperature at Fargo was 94 degrees under fair and breezy skies. A strong dome of high pressure is controlling the Central US, causing most of the Plains to bake as we start to head our way towards Labor Day weekend. Several record highs are being set throughout the central portion of the US, with the heat expected to stick around for the next few days. Sunday and Monday, however, are expected to be the worst 2 days over the Northern Plains and the Upper Midwest. There is a bit of a trough expected to swing through the Dakotas and into MN overnight into tomorrow, but it won’t provide any cooling temperatures. It could kick off a few scattered strong storms overnight, so don’t be surprised to hear a few rumbles of thunder before the sun comes up. After that, most of the activity is expected to remain off to the north as temperatures spike into the low to mid 90s. The record highs for the next couple of days are 100 and 98 respectively, so luckily I don’t think we’ll make it quite that high, but still will be extremely warm. Stay cool everybody!
