COOLING OUT.  We’ll take a bit of a dip before we climb back up into more temperate settings this weekend as highs get stuck in the mid-30s.  Make it through Thursday and you’ll be set for that first really springy weekend of the season.  We’ve got the info you need, including cool resources from the Fish & Wildlife Service, free Ranger Rick and info on ND’s state parks in this time of social distancing.
