F-M to see chance of snow next few days; path of Tuesday storm uncertain

FARGO – The Fargo-Moorhead area could wake up to a half-inch of snow this morning, the National Weather Service reports.

That could make some spots slippery on area roads after overnight temps dipped below freezing to about 30 degrees.

Slick roads could be particularly true for the northern part of the Red River Valley, where 1 to 3 inches of snow was expected overnight, the NWS reported.

Today’s high will be about 34 degrees, with a 20 percent chance of rain or snow.

The overnight low will dip to a chilly 18 degrees, going into another cloudy and breezy day on Tuesday.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, highs are expected to be in the low 30s, with a 20 percent chance of snow both days, but a 40 percent chance of snow Tuesday night, the NWS reported.

The NWS is tracking a more significant storm system heading into the Plains on Tuesday, though the path of that storm is uncertain.

NWS forecasters expect the heaviest snowfall will swing south of the southern Red River Valley, but warn that a shift in the storm track could bring heavy snowfall, and precipitation amounts of an inch or more of water, to the southern part of the valley.
