Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Bismarck ND
311 PM CST Mon Nov 28 2016

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Wednesday) Issued at 230 PM
CST Mon Nov 28 2016

Have decided to leave headlines as they are as most areas have
already or will see significant snow.

So far today (as of 2 pm cst) around 5 to 11 inches of snow has
fallen across a large portion of central into west central North
Dakota. The areas yet to see snow accumulations are the James
river valley where temperatures have remained in the mid 30s with
mainly rain...and the far northwest which will see snow begin
soon.

An additional 4 to 6 inches of snow is expected through Wednesday
afternoon for storm totals across central North Dakota around 16
inches. Less snow is expected to the southwest and northwest with
4 to 8 inches, and in the James river valley 3 to 5 inches.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday night through Monday) Issued at 230 PM
CST Mon Nov 28 2016

The extended period will be fairly quiet after the storm exits the
region. A broad weak flow aloft at h500 will limit any shortwave
energy across the northern plains. Often weak flow aloft and cold
snow covered surfaces favors fog development with stratus areas.
Have not added this at this time but something to watch.

Highs this week will be in the 20s to lower 30s. lows in the teens
and lower 20s. No significant precipitation.
