Snowfall for the Grand Forks area today isn’t expected to be as heavy as previously predicted, according to the National Weather Service.
Previous forecasts called for 1 to 4 inches of snow, but new data indicates the area would see only about 1 inch, according to John Hoppes, a meteorologist with the local weather service office.
The winter storm, maybe even a blizzard, forecast for much of the Red River Valley — including up to 8 inches of snow predicted for Grand Forks — never made it that far north.
National Weather Service meteorologist Brad Hopkins said several factors spared Grand Forks from the winter storm that dropped rain, ice and as much as 18 inches of snow in central Minnesota and southeast North Dakota.
It is dry. An average total of 1.33 inches of precipitation was recorded between October and December in the Red River Valley, including the Devils Lake Basin and Sheyenne River Valley, according to the National Weather Service.
After a few frigid nights, temperatures in the Grand Forks area are expected to warm up a bit this week, the National Weather Service said. Forecasters said there’s a chance of light snow Tuesday night and again Friday and Friday night.
