Hot off the heels of Sunday’s snow, additional snow can be expected Monday through Tuesday. Snow is forecast for portions of southeastern North Dakota, west-central Minnesota, and into northwestern Minnesota, however there remains a chance that areas further north could also see periodic snow Monday through Tuesday. Generally light snow is expected however there could be brief periods of heavier snow. We will hold off on providing snow amounts at this time as there remains much uncertainty regarding this event. Please keep an eye on the forecast into early next week for latest updates. #ndwx #mnwx
A snowy pattern is setting up for the region. Here is an explanation why: An upper level trough is building over the western United States. A piece of energy on the leading edge of the trough will move over the region providing snow on Sunday. As the trough deepens, southwest flow aloft will eject smaller pieces of energy over the region continuing the chance for snow through Tuesday. Please keep an eye on the forecast if you have any travel plans Sunday through Tuesday. #ndwx #mnwx
