According to the Storm Prediction Center with the National Weather Service, much of North Dakota could be looking at strong to severe storms on Saturday.  The main threat will be hail and damaging winds up to 60 miles per hour.  Warm temperatures are expected with highs in the low to mid-90s and breezy south winds.

The timing of these storms will be late Saturday afternoon into Saturday evening and even on the overnight into Sunday morning.  Isolated strong to severe storms are also possible this afternoon, into the evening, and even on the overnight as well.  These storms are not expected to be as widespread as the storms that will develop on Saturday evening.

A few storms will linger into Sunday and Sunday afternoon and once again, these storms could also become severe.

Much warmer weather is expected to settle into North Dakota starting Tuesday of next week with temps in the mid to upper 80s for Tuesday and Wednesday and reaching the 90s on Thursday.

The long-range 10-day forecast for Bismarck, according to the Weather Channel is for dry and warm conditions to develop next week.  Highs will be near or above 90 degrees for the period and very small chances of rain.

Looks like we might be shifting out of this wet cycle we have been in for a while now, at least for the short term.  If you have vacation plans over the next 10 days near water it could be perfect timing for you and your family.  Enjoy the warm weather, because as you know, July goes by so fast and it won't be long and we'll be in back-to-school mode.
