Weather Forecast

Dry air continues to move in tonight, and we have a break in the rain chances for a couple of days.

We have one more day of warm air, then cooler air arrives again by week's end and the weekend. There will be a slight chance of rain this weekend, but much of the dynamics will be north of KOTA Territory, so at this point, it appears the rain will be spotty at best.
