Dorrell’s PM Forecast Update Thursday 1/19


From the KX News Dakota Storm Center:

Across the state today, we have bee seeing mostly sunny skies with temps running slightly above average and in a mild range, through the 20s & 30s with a few 40s. There has been no precip on radar today, but this calm weather pattern will change. Tonight, expect partly cloudy skies with in & out cloud cover and areas fog. Where fog develops, freezing drizzle will be possible. Keep in mind that “black ice” will be possible in areas of fog & freezing drizzle. Friday, am fog will lift up and burn off with even more cloud cover rolling into Western & Central ND. By Friday afternoon & evening scattered wintry mix/snow will be possible. Off/on mix and snow chances will last through the weekend with mostly cloudy skies, some clearing and little to no accumulation. Through this three day event (Friday, Saturday, Sunday), expect conditions to remain cloudy with areas of patchy fog/freezing drizzle, scattered mix/snow chances and not much warming. Less than 1″ of mix/snow accumulation is expected across most of Central & Western ND. There will be areas of 1″-3″, a light snowfall accumulation if any.  
The beginning of the work week will bring a little more sunshine with daytime highs closer to the seasonable range. Also, a few of the long-range models are hinting at another chance for snow Tuesday & Wednesday. However, it is still too far out to give an in-depth forecast on this system.

Tonight, partly cloudy skies and chilly with areas of fog & freezing drizzle possible. Lows in the teens & 20s and a light wind out of the South/SE. Chills in the teens & single digits. 

Friday will start off chilly with am fog burning off. Expect a sun cloud mix, followed by increasing clouds through the day and wintry mix chances by afternoon & evening. Highs in the 20s & 30s with a SE wind 2-12mph. 10% chance for mix/snow.

Friday night, skies will become mostly cloudy with scattered mix & snow affecting some areas. Lows in the teens & 20s and a light East/NW wind. 20% chance for mix/snow with chills in the teens and single digits. 
Saturday will bring cloudy skies with scattered mix, freezing drizzle & snow at times. Highs in the 20s & 30s with a light wind swinging around to the Northwest. 30% chance for mix/snow.
Saturday night, continued cloudy skies with scattered mix/snow. Lows in the 20s & teens with a NW wind 2-10mph and chills in the teens. 20% chance for mix/snow.
