Provided below are hourly weather graphs produced by your National Weather Service Office in Bismarck for selected cities across Western and Central North Dakota. Simply click on the city name to retreive the hourly weather graphs for that location for a seven day period. These hourly weather graphics provide line and bar graph representations of the hourly forecast temperature, dewpoint, wind chill/heat index, wind direction/speed/gust, relative humidity, precipitation potential and the associatied weather conditions (rain, thunderstorm, snow, fog etc.) for a seven day period.
These graphs provide highly detailed weather forecasts for each hour through seven days, allowing you to plan your activities for expected weather conditions, from planning a picnic to cutting your fields. The date for the forecast you are viewing is located along the top of the weather graphs along with arrow controls to go forward or backward in time through the forecast valid period. The heat index trace (orange) may at times cover up the temperature trace (red) on the graphs, meaning that the temeperature and heat index are the same (which usually occurs when the humidity is low). All parameters can be toggled on and off using the controls above the graphs. If there is a city you would like added, please e-mail the webmaster, located at the bottom of the page.
