If you got under the right cloud last night, you may have picked up some beneficial rainfall.

I was playing tennis with my son last night in south Bismarck and we were forced to stop playing, not because of rain, but because of nearby lightning strikes.  As we worked our way home, we ran into brief heavy rain in the city of Lincoln, but it had stopped where we live south of Lincoln.

That's kind of the way it went last night.  Some areas picked up very beneficial rain and other areas may have only received a few drops.

Bismarck and Mandan missed out on the heaviest rains once again (The Bismarck Bubble is a real thing you know).

The same thing happened with the last several rain events for Bismarck Mandan.  Wind will be the story for the rest of the week in Bismarck Mandan.  Look for gusty south winds for the next several days with winds up to 40 miles per hour.  The next chance for rain will move in on Friday evening.
