...ACCUMULATING SNOW AND LIGHT FREEZING RAIN POSSIBLE WEDNESDAY
NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY MORNING...

Snow will spread across most of North Dakota Wednesday night
through early Friday morning. Uncertainty remains where the
heavier snow will fall, but at this time it appears much of south
central North Dakota and the James River Valley will have the best
chance of at least 4 inches of snow during this period. Light
freezing rain may also cause light ice accumulations across the
James River Valley on Thursday.

Impacts to travel may occur. Continue to check back for the latest
forecasts.

...WITHIN BANK RIVER RISES OVER THE JAMES RIVER BASIN...

The recent mild weather has melted most of the snow across the
James River Valley, but cooler weather is now expected to arrive
midweek. The cool pattern will bring unsettled weather with rain
and snow across the region. Precipitation amounts from a quarter
of an inch to as much as an inch are possible Wednesday night into
Thursday. Since some of this will fall as snow, rapid runoff of
the precipitation is not likely.

The Pipestem and James rivers are still expected to crest below
minor flood stage Tuesday into Wednesday of this week. This will
be followed by falling river levels into the weekend. The added
precipitation could slow this fall, or even prolong the crest.

The worst case scenario would be all of the precipitation falling
as rain in a short period of time, which could push river levels
close to minor flood stage at Lamoure. However, this is not
considered likely at this time.

Those with river concerns should continue to monitor the latest
stages and forecasts.
