Rain is expected Tuesday night into Wednesday, but meteorologists say the region is safe from severe weather.
Rain is expected to move in from South Dakota overnight, said National Weather Service Meteorologist Andrew Moore. The gloomy weather will likely stick around throughout Wednesday, with scattered showers and about a half-inch of rain throughout the region, Moore said. Areas south of Grand Forks will be hit the worst, while Moore said the north may see as little as a tenth of an inch.
Temperatures are slightly below normal, although Moore said it’s nothing compared to the abnormally low temperatures seen during April.
“It’s not quite as warm as we’d like it to be, but it’s not too bad,” he said.
Friday could be another rainy day, with the Devils Lake region receiving the most precipitation, Moore said. After a week of dreary weather, Moore said temperatures are expected to warm up next week.
