Discussion...
it's a quiet evening, as winds have dropped off behind cold
front, which is now south of the Red River. Temperatures will
fall into the 40s, similar to this morning. Biggest short term
concern will be the strength of the winds tomorrow. Later shifts
will evaluate the potential for a Wind Advisory. Sustained winds
of 20-25 mph will be common with widespread gusts from 30-35 mph.
It will be noticeably cooler tomorrow as well.
