Light snow, flurries expected in F-M with heavier snow to the eastFARGO – As of about 7 a.m. this morning, the Fargo area had received about 0.70 inches of snow and the National Weather Service was reporting more snow could fall in the region today as a weather system moves out of South Dakota and into west Central Minnesota early this afternoon.
Snow accumulations of 2 to 5 inches were expected east of a line running from about Bemidji, Minn., to Wahpeton, N.D., with flurries and light snow west of that line, including in Fargo-Moorhead, said Jeff Makowski, of the weather service in Grand Forks.
Freezing rain that fell over parts of the region Friday night and early today was expected to change completely to snow by late morning.
The Weather Service said slushy conditions existed on Interstate 94, particularly east of Fergus Falls, and ice could become a problem this evening as temperatures fall.

Sunday is expected to be sunny with a high near 22, with winds from the northwest at 17-20 mph and gusting to 24 mph.
