SNOW TIMING: Snow will continue with light to moderate intensity as we go through the evening and early overnight. It will taper off west to east as we go from the 11 PM to the 4 AM timeframe. The Southern Valley should see the snow end by midnight and it could last until the early overnight in Lakes Country. The snow should be over by daybreak Sunday.
SNOW AMOUNTS: In the Devils Lake Basin we expect 0-2". Grand Forks to Valley City and points east should get 2-4". Southeast of a line from Bemidji to Fergus Falls to Whapeton, the most snow should fall with 4-8". See the map below for our latest snowfall forecast.
WARM AND DRY START TO NEXT WEEK Temperatures will be on the way up as we round out the weekend and for the first half of next week. We have another couple of chances for snow on Thursday and next weekend
SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY: Any snow should be well to our south and east as we go through Sunday morning, with decreasing clouds through the day. It will be partly cloudy, breezy and a little warmer. Highs will be in the upper 20s south and the upper teens north. We add about 7 degrees to those highs on Monday as the high strengthens and we get warmer as we keep partly cloudy skies. A dry cold front will move through Wednesday morning, followed by another high that will crest over us by afternoon. Temps will cool to near 30 south and near 20 north, but we will see mostly sunny skies.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY: Another strong low will move to our south and east and has the possibility to become a significant snow system in those areas. Right now it look like we will be on the Northern Fringe of the snow with light amounts possible Thursday. Highs will be in the lower 30s south and the lower 20s north. We add 6-8 degrees to that on Friday as more high pressure to our south warms us up with partly cloudy skies.
NEXT WEEKEND: Another system will move west to east across our forecasts area that has the possibility to give us significant snow. Temps should stay on the warm side but the wind will pick up. Stay tuned for the latest forecasts as we go through the week.
