Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Bismarck ND
304 PM CST Sat Jan 21 2017

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Sunday)
Issued at 242 PM CST Sat Jan 21 2017

The main story for this evening and overnight will once again be
the fog and drizzle. A stagnant pattern continues with very little
wind and mixing. Slick roads and limited visibility will be
possible once again across portions of central North Dakota
tonight.

Winds are expected to increase Sunday, which should finally kick
out the fog and lift some of the lowest cloud ceilings.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday night through Saturday)
Issued at 242 PM CST Sat Jan 21 2017

The next chance for snow will be Monday night and Tuesday into
Tuesday night. The global models continue to track the upper low
south of the state placing the best chances for accumulating snow
across far southern North Dakota with an average of about 1 to 2
inches.

The remainder of the week looks marginally cooler with some
chances for light snow as a ridge builds across the eastern
Pacific and an h500 trough consolidates across the eastern CONUS
and Canada. Weak cyclonic flow aloft will support at least some
light snow.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Sunday afternoon)
Issued at 1151 AM CST Sat Jan 21 2017

Widespread LIFR/VLIFR conditions in fog and stratus will continue
across western and central North Dakota.
