This time last year, Dickinson saw some snow flurries. Luckily, the weather this weekend will not be like it was in 2019.

"During Sunday, we do warm up," said Alex Edwards, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Bismarck. We've got highs in the upper 60s on Sunday and around 70 on Monday. We do warm up towards the end of the weekend there, and we're looking at upper 60s to low 70s next weekend."

Some chilly breezes are possible.

"We have several fronts move through next week, so any day could be a little breezier," Edwards said. "There's nothing really that stands out as far as windy like we had a few days ago, but this time of year, it's always breezy in North Dakota."

Sunday stands to be the breeziest day of the weekend, with southward wind from 8 t 17 mph and gusts as high as 26 mph. Fortunately, it's also the warmest.

The beginning of October this year will be warmer than last year, and drier.

"(There's) no real precipitation makers, and certainly no big snow storms on the horizon like we had the middle of last October ... Certainly no cold snaps in the outlook here for the next week or so," Edwards said.

The weather will be more aligned with the average for this time of year, if not a little warmer.

"Through the month of October, our average daily high temperature for normal drops off pretty quickly from October 1 to the end of October," Edwards said. "At this point (in October), our normal high is about 65, but that drops off pretty quickly over the next few weeks. We're looking at highs in the low 70s possible several days next week, so it's definitely near-normal to above-normal scale."
