Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Grand Forks ND
336 AM CDT Mon Apr 16 2018

Lake Of The Woods-North Beltrami-North Clearwater-South Beltrami-
South Clearwater-Hubbard-East Becker-East Otter Tail-Wadena-
336 AM CDT Mon Apr 16 2018

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of eastern North
Dakota, west central and northwest Minnesota.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Less than an inch of additional snow is expected early this
morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Steady snowmelt will continue this week, with daytime highs in
the 40s. However, temperatures should fall back below freezing at
night, at least through Thursday morning. By Friday into the
upcoming weekend, there should be an even stronger push of
snowmelt. This would be due to daytime highs pushing into the 50s
with overnight lows staying above freezing, allowing the melt to
continue both day and night. During the typical snowmelt, there
are days when thick fog can form, which can put a damper on the
warming. However, this longer duration of expected warmer
temperatures should result in ponding of water in low lying areas
and increases in water flowing into the local river system. There
are already several rivers in the southern Red River Valley
approaching minor flood stage.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated.
