...SNOW LIKELY FOR WEST AND CENTRAL NORTH DAKOTA SUNDAY NIGHT
THROUGH WEDNESDAY...

SNOW WILL LIKELY IMPACT PORTIONS OF WESTERN AND CENTRAL NORTH
DAKOTA BEGINNING SUNDAY NIGHT AND CONTINUING THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
PRECIPIATION WILL START AS RAIN ACROSS SOUTH CENTRAL NORTH DAKOTA
SUNDAY AFTERNOON, THEN CHANGE TO SNOW SUNDAY NIGHT. A BRIEF
PERIOD OF FREEZING RAIN OR SLEET IS POSSIBLE DURING THIS CHANGE
OVER. SNOW WILL THEN EXPAND NORTH AND WEST TO PORTIONS OF WESTERN
AND NORTH CENTRAL NORTH DAKOTA BY MONDAY. PERIODS OF ACCUMULATING
SNOW AND GUSTY WINDS ARE POSSIBLE MONDAY INTO WEDNESDAY.

THE CURRENT UNCERTAINTY INVOLVES WHEN THE RAIN WILL CHANGE TO
SNOW AND HOW RAPID THE SNOW WILL ACCUMULATE. IT IS LIKELY INITIAL
PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE JAMES RIVER VALLEY WILL FALL AS RAIN
BEFORE CHANGING TO SNOW SUNDAY NIGHT. THEREFORE, THE BEST CHANCES
FOR ACCUMULATING SNOW WILL BE ACROSS CENTRAL NORTH DAKOTA, WITH
LIGHTER AMOUNTS FAR WEST AND FAR EAST. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS ARE STILL
UNCERTAIN, BUT TRAVEL IMPACTS ACROSS THE CENTRAL THIRD OF NORTH
DAKOTA ARE POSSIBLE.

THERE IS STILL UNCERTAINTY WITH THIS STORM. BE PREPARED FOR
TRAVEL IMPACTS ACROSS THE NORTHERN PLAINS. KEEP UP TO DATE WITH
THE FORECAST.
