Snow is going to highlight the overnight forecast for Sunday night. Snow will fall for the southwest and stay along the North Dakota/South Dakota border for the morning hours on Monday. Accumulations are expected to stay within the 1-2 inch range or less. The farther norther, the less snow is anticipated, as most of this will stay along the border. In fact, to the north, you will likely have a partly cloudy sky and high temperatures are only expected to be in the teens. The southern part of the state will see highs on Monday in the lower 20s. The temperatures get even colder for Monday night as a building high pressure system sets up, allowing for lows in the single digits. Pockets of colder air will continue for much of the week as highs will stay in the teens and twenties. Another chance of light snow may occur on Wednesday night for the north as a surge on energy quickly comes through. The bright side is the temperatures will be warming up to near freezing by next weekend. An average temperature for early November is in the mid 40s and lows in the lower to mid 20s.
Sunday night, winds light, north to east, and lows in the teens with a partly cloudy sky. A few late night snow showers are possible in the southwest. Chance of snow, 30%, for the southern region. Accumulations less than one inch.
