...WINTRY CONDITIONS RETURN THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT...
A storm system will impact western and central North Dakota
Thursday night through Friday night. Southwest North Dakota
may see little snowfall, as most of the precipitation falls as
rain with above freezing temperatures beginning Thursday night.
Accumulating snowfall potential increases towards the Missouri
River and Lake Sakakawea. Snow, at times mixed with rain early
Friday morning, may change to all rain by mid-day and through the
afternoon as temperatures warm.
The greatest snowfall accumulations potentially in excess of 6
inches are possible across north central North Dakota, the Turtle
Mountains, and through the James River Valley. Strong southeast
winds coupling with wet snow may lead to significantly reduced
visibility. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for these areas.
Patchy freezing drizzle is possible Friday night. Uncertainty in
snowfall amounts remains as temperatures will be near freezing.
Difficult travel conditions are possible. Life threatening
conditions for newborn livestock may develop. See
www.weather.gov/bis for details.
