June 29, 2012

Today will be hot and dry with a high temperature of around 89 degrees, but the area will see a 20 percent chance of rain beginning this evening that will carry over to a 30 percent chance of thunderstorms throughout the day on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service graphical forecast data.

Vince Godon, a NWS meteorologist in Grand Forks, said if the weather does get wet on Saturday it’s hard to tell how much will fall.
