It’s going to be stormy today in Fargo, but what will the next two days bring to North Dakota’s largest city?
At 953AM, CT, Fargo was reporting 86 degrees with mostly sunny skies. A cold front associated with low pressure in Canada was sweeping through the Dakotas and would dictate today’s weather along the Red River. The front was clearly demarcated already at this early hour, with temperatures along the Minnesota border already in the mid 80s, however to the west in Devils Lake and Bismarck, temperatures were only in the 70s with dew points that were also about 10 degrees cooler. Across the river in Moorhead, Minnesota, dew points were in the 70s.
Nothing had been triggered as yet in this juicy, dynamic atmosphere, and the visible satellite gave no hints that anything would happen in the next few hours either. The system has languished in the Pacific Northwest for days, but is now moving much more quickly, and the wet weather should be at it’s in by day break tomorrow. Another trough sweeping through Canada may bring the threat for a sprinkle late on Monday, but attempts at fireworks tomorrow night will be dry and successful.
