Warmer temperatures are in the forecast across the Northern Plains this week. “Temperatures are going to be downright fantastic,” said Drew Lerner, senior agricultural meteorologist, World Weather Incorporated. “There will be 50 to 60 degree readings and a few 70 degree readings from South Dakota into southwest North Dakota. The northeast part of the Northern Plains is tougher to get to warm up, but it should be 10 to 15 degrees warmer.” The next storm system of significance is anticipated November 7 – 9. “We will have a storm of size impacting the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest. It could produce some rain and then, rain changing to snow. Then, we could end up with nasty snow accumulations across parts of the region, but it’s challenging to forecast much more at this time.” Hear Lerner’s latest weather forecast.
