In regards to the storm system due this upcoming weekend...Nov 10-11th.... it is still looking that areas across the northwest half of North Dakota will see a significant amount of snow....with most computer models indicating highest chances Watford City-Garrison-Rugby and points north of this line including Williston-Minot. Rain-snow mix Bismarck to Grand Forks. It will be windy too. Not a paralyzing blizzard but something that will hamper travel. It will turn cold afterwards with a few nights in the single digits above zero.

.a blizzard warning is in effect for south central north
dakota and the james river valley for this evening and tonight.
This includes the cities of bismarck...mandan...elgin...fort
yates... Linton...steele...jamestown and carrington. Snowfall
across the area this evening and tonight will combine with
northerly winds to 40 mph to create significantly reduced
visibilities below one quarter mile. Travel will become very
hazardous. Snowfall accumulations of 3 to 5 inches are expected...
With higher amounts of 6 to 8 inches for southern morton...grant...and
sioux counties...and east through lamoure and ellendale.

heavy snow is expected through tonight with snowfall accumulations
of 3 to 5 inches from watford city to garrison. 6 to 8 inches of

increase through the afternoon and evening to 35 mph...expect

1120 am cst sat dec 8 2012

...blizzard warning remains in effect from midnight tonight to
9 am cst sunday...

* timing...saturday night through sunday morning.

* winds/visibility...northerly winds to 40 mph creating

A blizzard warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected or occurring. Snow...and or blowing snow...coupled with
strong winds...will result in extremely poor visibilities. This
will lead to whiteout conditions...making travel extremely
dangerous. If you absolutely must travel...have a winter survival
kit with you. If you get stranded...stay with your vehicle.
