Through Thursday Morning:

A cold north wind is causing spotty drifting snow this afternoon, especially in the south, and much colder air. Temperatures will struggle through the rest of the day with highs mostly in the single digits. Wind chills will remain below zero. Once the sun sets tonight, temperatures will start sliding back into the negative number and stay there overnight. Expect mostly clear to partly cloudy skies through morning.

The Next Seven Days:

THURSDAY - FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY: Thursday will see the arrival of the third and final Alberta clipper of the week. The day will start quietly, but snow pushes in midday to our western communities, trekking eastward through the rest of the day and night. That will result in treacherous travel during the afternoon and into the evening. Temperatures will begin the day in the single digits on both sides of zero and warm up to around 30° as a result of the strengthening south winds in front of the storm.

FRIDAY - FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY: The snow continues during the overnight period, tapering off into Friday morning. As a result, we will see difficult travel in the morning. The snow will result in more widespread accumulations than what we have seen from our other snow chances this week. Expect another 1 to 3 inches across most of the Red River Valley. Winds will also be quite strong out of the north which will be much colder temperatures into our region. These temperatures will reach the single digits on Friday and continue to plummet as we move into the weekend.

SATURDAY - SUNDAY: We finally have another break in the clouds as we head into our last weekend of January! But we will continue to see the temperatures dip even more. We will experience an arctic blast as temperatures will remain in the negatives all weekend and into the beginning of next week as well.

MONDAY - TUESDAY: Our subzero temperatures will continue on Monday. We will also see the winds pick up which will result in wind chills quickly becoming an issue. We can expect sunny skies, but temps will remain very cold. The cold will continue on Tuesday, despite a south breeze. The skies will begin partly cloudy and move toward overcast as a cold front approaches the area later in the evening. Thanks to this cold front, Wednesday looks to be colder.
