Several Inches of April Snow Falling Across the Valley

Posted: Updated:

The wintry April weather is forecast to extend into southeastern North Dakota, with up to 10 inches of snow expected by Thursday night. Winter weather advisories and winter storm warnings are in place for parts of the southern valley.

According to Valley News Live meteorologist Mick Kjar, snow stars Thursday morning and will continue through Friday across eastern North and South Dakota and central Minnesota. Southern counties may see 6 or more inches of snow, but much less from Fargo and to the north.

In Fargo, 2-4 inches of snow is possible by Thursday night. Expect runoff and some rivers to have very limited rise over the next 48-72 hours because of the cold. Then the headwaters area of the Red River will continue the slow, nearly record late melt.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) has issued a Travel Alert for southeast North Dakota including the cities of Jamestown, Ellendale, Edgeley, Valley City, Wahpeton, Fargo, Hillsboro and surrounding areas.

Conditions are such that motorists can still travel in these areas, but should be advised that heavy snow and blowing snow is causing reduced visibility and icy conditions. Motorists are encouraged to reduce speeds and drive according to the conditions.

All travelers are encouraged to monitor road conditions as weather conditions occur and use caution while traveling. For road information, call 511 from any type of phone or go to the website: www.dot.nd.gov.  NDDOT releases information to inform the public about travel conditions throughout the state.
