Hi there....

Too many winter warnings to post them all for the area.....

But got blizzard warnings for late today into Saturday morning for northeastern ND...incl Devils Lake and Grand Forks.... and winter storm warnings back southwest to Bismarck...Minot....Fargo is also in a winter storm warning.

Low will track from Nebraska into Minnesota and be near Wadena-Brainerd MN late tonight. This low will bring a band of heavy snow from central ND into northeast ND then into southeastern Manitoba. Main band of heaviest snow 6-10 is most likely to fall from just east of Bismarck up through Carrington then to just west of Grand Forks then to Drayton ND then into Manitoba....in about a 50 mile wide band. Lighter snowfalls east and west of this band in Minot and Fargo.

But it is important to understand that this storm has wind which will crank up through the day today and tonight and produce very low visibilities in blowing snow and blizzard conditions in rural areas. Also temps will continue to plunge to 10 below to 10 above by Saturday morning so wind chills will drop into the -20s and -30s in many areas. So not a storm to take lightly even if you dont get the heaviest of the snow.

Default Minot, Winter Weather, 1-25-13

I was looking at the forecast for Minot and starting on Monday there is a chance of snow. Tuesday calls for a high of 15° and a low of -12°. So just a heads up, it's going to get colder. I guess we've enjoyed this sping like weather too long.
