Update... 
issued at 646 am CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Removed early morning drizzle/freezing drizzle wording from the 
zones as surface observation have been dry all morning under the stratus 
deck creeping south across western and central North Dakota. 
Otherwise...the remaining weather elements are in good shape. The 
updated products have been sent. 


&& 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 333 am CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Effects of a large cloud deck moving south across the state behind a 
cold front will be the main forecast concerns in the short term. 
Timing of clouds dissipating today will affect maximum temperatures. 


Currently...a cold front extended from a low near Jamestown westward 
along I-94. A large cloud deck in south central Canada well behind 
the front was pushing into northwestern North Dakota. 


The cold moist air will push south across the state today...and the 
low cloud deck should encompass the state later this morning. Some 
observation sites were reporting fog at the leading edge of the 
cloud deck...but this should not last long as stratus deck moves 
over and winds pick up a bit. The fog in the James Valley may linger 
until the low moves southeast and the front pushes through...so kept 
a mention of fog there until around sunrise. 


The large Canadian high pushes south across the state today...and 
the models indicate clouds dissipating with time today. Expecting 
dissipating clouds during the afternoon. A cool day with highs only 
reaching the upper 30s north to the low to middle 40s south. 


By Friday morning the high center should be over the Red River 
valley...with a good pressure gradient in the west allowing 
southeast winds to develop by around midnight. Low temperatures 
should range from the teens in central North Dakota closer to the 
high center...to the 20s in the far west with the southeast winds 
mixing the lower atmosphere and keeping temperatures from falling below 20. 


Long term...(friday through wednesday) 
issued at 333 am CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Strong upper level ridging building over the Great Plains will 
generate dry conditions over North Dakota Friday and Saturday. 
Very windy conditions are forecast to develop over southwestern 
North Dakota Friday afternoon as low pressure develops across 
Montana. Winds should abate by Saturday as the surface cyclone 
enters eastern Montana and weakens gradient flow across North 
Dakota. 


The medium range models are beginning to come into better 
agreement with the evolution and track of a shortwave lifting into 
central and eastern Montana Sunday. The bulk of the precipitation 
should remain in Montana Sunday. As the shortwave enters 
Saskatchewan and Manitoba Sunday night into Monday...wrap around 
moisture could generate a chance of snow showers Monday 
morning...with the precipitation type likely transitioning to rain 
showers Monday afternoon. 


Dry conditions are then forecast Monday night through Tuesday as 
shortwave ridging crests over North Dakota. 


The medium range models forecast a slight chance for rain or snow 
developing north Tuesday night as the left front quadrant of a 130+ knots 
upper jet streak lifts across the state. 


Dry conditions are forecast again by Wednesday as broad upper 
ridging builds over The Rockies into the Western Plains. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Friday morning) 
issued at 646 am CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Large cloud deck with MVFR and embedded IFR ceilings over most of 
south central Canada was moving south across North Dakota. Some 
MVFR/IFR visibilities in fog occurring at the leading edge of the cloud 
deck...thus do not expect any fog to last very long. MVFR and IFR 
ceilings should become VFR gradually during the afternoon. 


&& 


Bis watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
