From the KX Storm Team:
There will be one more round of unseasonably warm temps, tomorrow. That will be after a cold front tonight. This quick moving clipper will not affect everyone and we are only looking at scattered light showers. With temperatures falling below freezing (before Midnight) there will be an increasing chance for wintry mix and freezing rain. This wintry precip will not roll into the NW corner of our area until after Midnight and temperatures will stay below freezing until after Noon, Friday.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from Midnight through 9am (CST). This alert has been issued for Williams, Burke, Divide, Mountrail, McKenzie, Dunn, Golden Valley & Billings counties.
Freezing rain is expected. Ice accumulation will lead to difficult travel conditions. Icy roads, sidewalks & bridges will be possible through your morning commute on Friday. Total ice accumulations of up to 1/10 of an inch are expected. Use caution & slow down while driving.
This scattered light mix/rain will be wrapping up around sunrise with a little bit of clearing through the day. Even after tonight’s clipper moves through the Dakotas, clouds will stick around for many of us especially along and south of I-94. Temps will top out in the 30’s & 40’s one more time, before starting to fall through the weekend.
Highs on Saturday & Sunday will fall through the 30’s and into the 20’s. We will also be tracking a “Colorado Low” through the weekend. At this time it looks like this low will track East & NE, far enough to our south that we are not looking at very high snow chances. If this system develops or tracks any farther North, this forecast could change. This comes down to good news/bad news. We could really use the moisture, and it looks like this system will miss us for the most part.
By next week, temps will continue to gradually fall with a few chances for snow. By Tuesday & Wednesday, temps will be closer to average for this time of the year with highs in the 20s and lows in the single/double digits. It will be breezy at times and at this point, we are not looking at any severe or extreme winter weather through the next 7days.
Tonight will be mostly cloudy with a passing clipper. Expect scattered light rain & mix with freezing rain possible. Lows in the 20’s & 30’s with a SW/West wind 2-12mph. 40% chance of rain/snow showers. Chills in the teens & 20’s & light accumulations will be possible during the morning.
Friday will be mostly cloudy with scattered rain/mix early, followed by a little clearing. Highs in the 30s & 40s with a NW/West wind 5-15mph, gusting up to 20mph.
Friday night, clouds will start to move out with calming wind and areas of fog possible. Lows mostly in the 20’s with a light wind out of the West. Chills in the teens & single digits.
Saturday, partly cloudy with cooler temps. Highs in the 30’s with a West wind 5-15mph.
Saturday night will be mostly cloudy and colder. Lows mostly in the teens with a West/NW wind 2-10mph and chills in the single digits.
