From the KX Storm Team:
Big changes will continue through the rest of this week and as we go into the weekend. It all starts this evening. A cold front is starting to roll into Western & Central ND from over southern Canada. This cold front is bringing our next chance for snow. We are not looking at high totals, but some of us will have to break out the snow shovel & brushes by tomorrow morning.
As of this afternoon, scattered light snow is moving into the state along & north of Hwy 2. After radar analysis & looking at NDDOT road cams, not much is accumulating, yet. On the NDDOT road conditions map, there is a little bit of slush on some of our roads in counties along the international border. By 10 pm, the leading edge of snow will move along & south of HWY 200 and after Midnight, snow will move into our Southern Region. Snow chances will start to taper off tomorrow and come to an end as clouds move out, after Noon. We are not looking at much in the way of accumulation. Along & North of I-94 1″-3″ are expected with a few areas possibly getting just above 3″. South of the interstate, less than 1″ is expected.
With tonight’s cold front, you will notice even bigger changes that are not directly related to snow totals. It is going to get very cold again. Temperatures will fall about 40 degrees on average, within 24 hours. Then if you add in winds (becoming breezy) the difference between today’s highs (30’s & 40’s) and tomorrow’s chills (-teens) will not only be noticeable, but you will need to go from wearing a lighter jacket to grabbing your heavier winter coats as you head out the door.
Tonight, scattered snow pushes south with temps falling considerably. Lows in the single digits & below zero with a West/North wind 5-15 mph. 90% chance of snow with chills dipping below zero.
Thursday will start off mostly cloudy with continued falling temps. Snow will end as clouds roll out. Highs in the single digits & teens with a North/NW wind 10-20 mph, gusting up to 30 mph. 60% chance of AM snow with chills below zero & in the -teens.
Thursday night will be mostly clear and very cold. Lows below zero with a West wind 5-15 mph & calming. Chills in the -teens & -20’s.
Friday will bring plenty of sunshine, early. Expect more clouds with warming temps through the day. Highs in the 20’s with a SW wind 10-20 mph. Chills climbing from the -teens, into the teens.
Friday night will be partly cloudy and cold. Lows in the single digits & teens with a SW/NW wind 2-12mph. Chills in the single digits.
