From the KX Storm Center:
Widespread snow has been moving through the state and there is a series of Winter Weather Alerts that is in effect across most of the state. They are all in effect through tonight & Saturday morning. It will be breezy and more snow is on the way. Event totals will be higher north of Hwy 200.
Along & south of I-94, up to 2″.
Northwest ND, along & West of the Missouri River 3″-5″ is expected with 6″+ possible.
The rest of North Central ND 3″-6″ is expected with 7″+ possible.
Along with accumulating snow, areas of dense fog will be possible. This means reduced visibility & slick roads are expected. Use caution while driving and check out the NDDOT road conditions map before you hit the roads. You can find that on the KX Weather web page, myndnow.com/weather. Saturday afternoon, this system will start to move out of the state with slightly warmer temps. Daytime highs (Southwestern & South Central ND) will climb above freezing and warmer temps are expected above the surface, too. Through Saturday afternoon & into the early evening, mix & light rain are in the forecast. By Sunday, it will start to clear out a bit with cooling temps and by Sunday night/Monday morning, temps will fall into the teens & single digits for most of our area.
Snow chances will not be over yet. Early next week, another system will bring scattered snow through Western & Central ND on Monday. Totals will not be as high and it will be breezy. Through next week, expect more sunshine with temps falling even further below average. So, lows will be in the teens with highs in the 20s & 30s. There is another chance of snow by this time next week.
After our current winter weather advisories end, no severe winter weather is expected during the next 7 days. Just a few chances of snow & much colder temperatures.
