Showers and a few thunderstorms are possible over western and central North Dakota this afternoon and evening. A cold front will push into central North Dakota late tonight bringing the potential for light snow into the west. On Wednesday the snow will spread slowly east but will mainly affect western into north central North Dakota. Another round of snow will spread across most of the state Wednesday night through Thursday night. Much uncertainty remains with the temperatures and the location of snow, but at this time it appears much of the James River Valley has a high risk of at least 4 inches of snow during this second round. Gusty northerly winds will also produce patchy blowing and drifting snow mainly over the south on Thursday. Impacts to travel may occur. Continue to check back for the latest forecasts.
