The latest Forecast from the KX News Dakota Storm Center.

The high pressure system continues to show within the area. The center is currently over Minnesota, but will start to move eastward within the next 24 hours. A weak low pressure system will be pushing the high out of the area. Associated with the low, is a warm front. This is going to allow warmer temperatures for this coming weekend. Winds may pick up slightly as the pressure gradients become closely compacted and the system comes closer to North Dakota. Overall, very little rain chances are expected, but not ruling it out with this system. The  start of the work week looks to be still comfortable with seasonable temperatures. The sun will be showing most of the time, but a few clouds are expected. The next chance of rain is going to be on Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning at this time. Overall, the forecast looks to be holding onto the fall weather for a little bit longer. 

Tonight, few clouds to start and then the clouds will fill in throughout the night. Winds will be from the southeast then shifting south at 1-8 mph. Overnight lows, in the mid to upper 30s. 

Friday, daytime highs in the lower to mid 60s with partly cloudy skies to start and then a gradual clearing through the day.  Winds from the south, then shifting northwest at 5-15 mph with occasional gusts to 20 mph. 

Friday night, lows on either side of 40 degrees with mainly clear skies likely and a light and variable wind from the west then southeast. 
Saturday, highs in the mid 60s with a few clouds in the area and a southeast wind at 5-15 mph. 
Saturday night, some clouds in the morning hours with lows in the mid 30s and a light and variable wind from the west.
