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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Light snow is expected to continue today before tapering off this
evening. An additional inch or so of accumulation will be
possible. With colder temperatures overnight, the snow and slush
on roads has frozen and made things slippery this morning, but
March sun angle should help bring a quick melt by mid-day.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

A few additional flurries are possible near the international
border on Wednesday.

Friday and Saturday will see rain and snow moving into the area.
Liquid amounts could be up to half an inch to a inch across
eastern North Dakota, but it is still very uncertain how much of
this will fall as rain and how much as snow. Stay tuned for more
details on what looks to be a wet, sloppy start to the weekend.


Spotter activation is not anticipated.
