The maps above are 2 different models....one the European...the other the American model depicting a possible storm system for mid week next week....more on that in a few but first let's focus on THIS WEEKEND. This week will continue to bring us above normal temps in the 40s all week.  This will continue to melt away our snow pack and if we see light enough winds we could get some of that pesky FOG in the early AM hours which would/could impact afternoon temps.  This weekend though, an upper level ridge moves over the valley and this means 50s and dare i say a few 60s just west and SW of the valley!!  Incredible temps.  Records for this upcoming weekend are in the mid 60s.  After this coming weekend, upper level winds turn in from the SW and that means stormier conditions.  Both ECMWF (European) model and GFS (American model) depict a large storm system to impact the northern plains with a major snow event targeting western SD/ND.  Now, the track of this storm will have to be monitored closely as this could impact the valley the middle of next week with rain/snow and wind.   Stay tuned....
