UP & AWAY! The first full week of summer looks to be a beauty with high temperatures climbing out of the 70s and up toward the 90s by next weekend. We take a look at conditions ahead and get a feel for flowing water and growing antlers in our Outdoors Roundup.

RISING. Input still exceeds output on Lake Sakakawea according to the most recent U.S. Army Corps of Engineers report. Inflowing water has hit 64,000 CFS, while outflow is right around 41,700. Expect a fast-flowing Missouri River over the July 4 holiday week.
SURGING. High temperatures will rise throughout the week and conditions will finally feel like summer. Don’t rule out some strong storms Thursday or Friday as warm temps and some instability spur possible downpours.
GROWING. Did you know antlers are one of the fastest growing tissues in the entire animal kingdom – including humans? Some cervids – such as elk – can add an inch of antler per day in the peak growing stretch of the summer. Check your trail cameras now and then again in a few weeks to see some incredible shifts in deer headgear as well!
