St. Patrick's Day PM Forecast Update | Friday 3/17

In & out clouds with warming temps and calmer winds this weekend

From the KX Storm Center:
Across Western & Central ND today, we started off under cloudy skies with scattered rain/mix on radar and it has been windy. This afternoon sunshine is the theme and peak wind gusts are ranging from 30 to 55mph for some. Our winds will calm down tonight with in & out clouds across the state. It will feel a little cool, but temps will stay well above average for this time of the year. 
A big temperature difference is expected through the next couple of days with a mixture of sunshine & cloud cover. Temps will warm through the 40s & 50s with a few 60s possible Saturday and even more on Sunday. It will also be breezy at times across the state. Sunday will bring another clipper and the next chance for rain/mix. With temps staying above freezing for most of the weekend, we are not looking at snow with this clipper. 
By the beginning of the work week, a slight cool-down is expected, followed by more warming by the mid-week. Also, precip chances come back into play for the second half of the 7day planner. 
 
Tonight, will be mostly clear to partly cloudy and a little cool. Lows in the teens & 20s with a NW/SE wind 2-12mph G20 (early) and calming a bit before picking back up Saturday.
 
Saturday, mostly sunny to partly cloudy with in & out clouds and still breezy. Highs in the 40s & 50s with a few 60s (West & SW) and a SE wind 10-20mph.
 
Saturday night, still a little cool with mostly clear to partly cloudy conditions. Lows in the 30s & 40s with a SE/SW wind 5-15mph G20.
 
Sunday will bring a change-up. Expect to start with plenty of sunshine and another round of mild temps across the state. More clouds will roll in with in creasing rain chances. Highs in the 40s & 50s with a NW wind 10-20mph.
 
Sunday night, mostly cloudy with a few lingering areas of precip. Lows in the 20s & 30s with a light NW wind.
