Describing the next few days will be short and sweet, we’ll see mainly sunny skies, a warm-up returning us to summer-like temperatures and increasing humidity as Gulf moisture is advected northwards in a southerly flow.

The only significant weather to speak of will be a slight chance of a shower or thundershower in the southwest Red River Valley on Thursday morning as a weak area of convection pushes through North Dakota. Other than that slight chance, things should be fairly dry through the rest of the week as well.

The Weekend

This weekend looks exceptinally summer-like as a humid, Gulf-sourced air mass entrenches itself over the Red River Valley. With temperatures in the low 30’s and dew points climbing to nearly 20°C, it’s going to feel more like it’s closer to 36 or 37°C. There will be a slight chance of showers or thunderstorms on Saturday night, but at this point the threat seems marginal at best. It looks to be a dry weekend for the most part with variable cloud cover.

After the weekend we move into a slightly dryer air mass, but the heat sticks around with daytime highs looking to be in the upper 20’s through most of the week.
