will keep the snow from accumulating, or change it over to rain
Tuesday night. A rain/snow mix continues into Wednesday, with only
minor accumulations as temperatures warm well into the 30s. The

...WINTRY WEATHER RETURNS TO NORTH DAKOTA WEDNESDAY THROUGH
THURSDAY NIGHT...

Showers and a few thunderstorms are possible over western and
central North Dakota this afternoon and evening. A cold front will
push into central North Dakota late tonight bringing the
potential for light snow into the west. On Wednesday the snow will
spread slowly east but will mainly affect western into north
central North Dakota.

Another round of snow will spread across most of the state
Wednesday night through Thursday night. Much uncertainty remains
with the temperatures and the location of snow, but at this time
it appears much of the James River Valley has a high risk of at
least 4 inches of snow during this second round. Gusty northerly
winds will also produce patchy blowing and drifting snow mainly
over the south on Thursday.

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

...WINTER STORM POTENTIAL THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY ...

A very complex pattern will set up over the northern Plains the
next couple of days.

One piece of energy will give chances for rain showers tonight
into Wednesday, with the risk for a period of freezing rain early
Wednesday in far northwestern Minnesota.

A stronger system is forecast to move east into South Dakota and
then northeast into northwestern Minnesota Thursday. As it does
colder air will be drawn in on the west side of the system with
warmer air to the east. Rain and snow will occur with this system
late Wednesday night into Thursday, with mostly snow for Thursday
night ending on Friday. There remains much uncertainty regarding
temperatures during the precipitation event as they will vary
greatly across the area. But the threat is there for significant
rain and snow.

Based on data Tuesday morning, the highest risk
area for 4 or more inches of snow is from Valley City to Grand
Forks to Thief River Falls. This is subject to change as
additional model data comes in the next 36 hours.

Impacts to travel may occur and also this precipitation could
aggravate flooding concerns.
