Today’s precipitation was just a taste of things to come, as a number of storm systems look to impact North Dakota in the near future. After a cold night tonight, expect clouds to increase and precipitation to begin first in the south by the afternoon, and then further north by the evening time frame. With colder air in place, it appears that much of the precipitation will fall as snow, especially areas north of I-94. Counties along the South Dakota border may only receive a cold rain. A few inches accumulation is possible, with higher totals possible for neighborhoods further east and north in the viewing area. This system will exit later Friday, with a dry but chilly day looking likely to begin the weekend. The next system however will arrive Sunday. A very pronounced dip in the jet stream will mean copious amounts of moisture for the northern Plains, with either heavy rain or heavy snow possible, depending on temperatures. At this point, the best chances for accumulating snow look to be across western portions of North Dakota and eastern Montana. -Meteorologist Dave Holder
