The latest Forecast from the KX News Dakota Storm Center.

The low pressure system is now quickly moving out of the area eastward. Minimal rain chances were in the area today, but only to pick back up again later tonight, a few thunderstorms are possible. Temperatures tonight will be above average due to a southwest wind at this time bringing in warmer temperatures from the southern United States, including some more humid conditions. Winds will continue to increase as the pressure gradients become more tightly compact, gusting upwards to 40 mph at times. Temperatures will also be cooler tomorrow than today, in the lower to mid 60s. The work week will see minimal chances of rain at this time as the current model runs are not showing any high chances of precipitation. Throughout the week temperatures will continue to be warmer than average in the 70s for much of the state.

Tonight, temperatures will be on either side of 50 degrees with a southwest wind shifting northwest through the course of the night at 15-25 mph and gusting to 40 mph. Showers and an occasional thunderstorm continue through the night.

Sunday, showers and thunderstorms remain in the area for the early morning hours and then clearing throughout the day. Windy conditions at times out of the northwest at 20-30 mph and gusting stronger through the day. Temperatures on the cooler side, either side of 60 degrees.
