Winter Storm Warning across eastern North Dakota

National Weather Service, Grand Forks

Heaviest snowfall could be about 5 to 9 inches.

The National Weather Service in Grand Forks has issued a Winter Storm Warning from the Canadian border near Bottineau all the way down through the southern Red River Valley.

In a weather briefing with reporters, meteorologist Timothy Lynch said this area of the state could receive several inches of snow.

"A lot of the newer guidance has suggested, some of these areas could see isolated amounts a little bit higher than this. But overall, we're looking at pretty good confidence of this five to nine inch axis of snowfall from the international border, southward down to about Wahpeton."

Lynch says there will not be a lot of wind associated with this system. Snow is expected to begin in the Devils Lake Basin late this evening, and persist throughout much of the day tomorrow. Lynch says following the storm, temperatures should warm up throughout the first half of next week before plummeting again by Wednesday.
