FARGO – Strong winds that blew down some small branches in Fargo-Moorhead on Sunday and this morning are expected to continue through this afternoon before dying down overnight and giving way to a chance of frost.

The National Weather Service has issued a frost advisory from 3 to 9 a.m. Tuesday for all of eastern North Dakota and northwest Minnesota.

Clear skies and light winds will allow temperatures to fall into the lower to mid-30s, causing widespread areas of frost to form, which could injure or kill sensitive plants, the weather service says.

Fargo’s Hector International Airport recorded a top wind gust of 47 mph and a top wind speed of 36 mph on Sunday, said Jim Kaiser, a meteorologist at the weather service in Grand Forks, N.D.

Winds will be a little lighter today, with gusts up to around 35 mph, he said. As a high pressure system moves into the area this afternoon, the winds will diminish, allowing for the chance of frost, he said.
