FARGO – We keep plowing toward spring – literally.

Friday’s doses of snow had crews and residents clearing streets, sidewalks and driveways Saturday morning.

Snowfall totals ranged from 3 to 4 inches throughout the Red River Valley, with 4 inches in Fargo and 4.5 inches in Grand Forks, according to the National Weather Service.

A travel alert has been issued for portions of north, central and eastern North Dakota, including Fargo, Grand Forks, Valley City and Minot.
