It'll be quite mild tonight and into the overnight hours with temperatures only falling into the 70s. Mostly clear skies will become mostly cloudy as clouds invade from the south. South winds of 10 to 15 MPH will be possible. Gusts near 20 to 25 MPH cannot be ruled out. There's a low chance for a shower or isolated storm along the Red River after midnight.
It'll be warm again next week with high temperatures climbing into the mid to upper 90s across most of the area. Overnight low temperatures will fall into the 70s. Rain chances aren't very high, but we will have to watch for storm complexes that may try to sink to the south of the Red River. If this appears more probable, adjustments to temperatures will be possible!
