Storm Spares Minot

Posted: Updated:

Winter weather has made its rounds throughout most of the state this week with some snowfall and slippery road conditions.

However, Minot didn't receive as much snowfall as predicted.

Kelli Volk is live outside where the snow made an impact, but not one that was expected.

Alysia, winter weather has been the hot topic for the past few days, but we've seen some varying predictions--especially here in Minot.

In fact, after talking with Amber Wheeler of KX Weather I learned that what we thought we would see in Minot is different from what actually happened.

During yesterday's 10 o'clock newscast, weather models indicated we would see 3 to 5 inches today in Minot.

We actually had about 1 inch of snowfall in Minot today.

Over the weekend, the confidence level was fairly high that we would see a lot of snowfall in Minot, but the changing forecast has shown otherwise.

(Amber Wheeler, KX Meteorologist)"We had models that began to really deviate from each other and that's where you start getting a little nervous. You want to get it right and so you try to stick with some numbers, but then once you see a lot of these models deviating it really makes it hard, and that's what happened."

Amber noted that although the weather conditions did change for Minot, it's still not a time for drivers to let their guard down.

They still need to drive with caution.

That's especially true for other parts of the state that are seeing the snowfall and slippery road conditions.

Reporting live, Kelli Volk, KX News.
