500 mb short wave was near Bismarck at 08z and will be near Aberdeen at 12z and then into southwest Minnesota by 18z. Main area of precipitation (mostly light rain) was ahead of this short wave moving thru the RRV and into west central MN.
Scattered showers were located farther north and west into Manitoba and central ND. This first and strongest short wave moves out this morning while another short wave moves south- southeast from western Manitoba into the Red River valley this evening.
