Grand Forks, North Dakota-based National Weather Service Warning Coordination Meteorologist Greg Gust says it feels like Oct-ember outside with the warm conditions. “October was miserable. The month started out warmer than normal, but into the second and third week of the month, we ended up with lower than normal temperatures. Now, we’re sitting here the first week of November at 10 to 15 degrees above normal.” Gust says warm temperatures will hold out through this weekend, but then, temperatures will start dropping below normal Saturday. “The north winds coming in on Saturday will usher in cooler temperatures and then, the early part of next week we’ll be lucky if temperatures get above freezing.” A rain and snow mix is possible on Sunday, but Gust says there are still some unknowns at this time.
