SNOW GFS_1521315048980.PNG.jpg

Even I wish I knew what to believe.  I can find two big forecast models that look much like the graphic that has the band of heavier snow stretching up into the north central.  I can also find the other two big forecast models that look much like the graphic that keeps the heavier snow in the south central and southwest. This is turning out to be a very tough storm to get a handle on.  There could be a period of freezing drizzle before the snow but in any scenario I come up with there will be widespread snow that will add up over several hours with some of us getting around 4 inches or so. The National Weather Service will be sending up another weather balloon tonight at 7pm and hopefully the data from that will help me fine tune the forecast.  If you are in the north near Minot we’re likely to come in around 3″ at least and if you’re near Bismarck there’s a chance of a bit more.  The west appears to be spared the heaviest snow.–Tom Schrader KX Storm Team
