WEATHER. In the Bismarck area, residents saw anywhere from 1 to 3 inches of rain from the system that rushed in around 1am this morning. Areas north of Dickinson received more than 5 inches, and a heavy rain band brought 3 to 6 inches into the Minot area. Large hail – up to tennis ball in size – was reported near Harvey.
WEEKEND. Cool temps will dominate the pre-Fourth weekend, and yesterday’s heavy heat will be just a memory, but relatively calm winds will make things enjoyable for fishing and relaxing.
