Snow, high winds expected for midweek in Grand Forks area

The Grand Forks area could see snowfall again this week, according to the National Weather Service.

Meteorologist Ryan Knutsvig said a storm system is moving in Tuesday night until Wednesday afternoon and could bring precipitation with it. Whether the area gets snow or rain depends on the temperature, he said. Temperatures are predicted to hover around the freezing mark, so in areas below freezing there could be snow, while areas above freezing will only see rain.

Reports show snow accumulation could reach between 1 and 4 inches in the Red River Valley area. Knutsvig said the storm will bring in strong wind from the north, with speeds ranging from 25 to 35 mph.

The end of the week is expected to look dry, but Knutsvig said there is potential for more precipitation throughout the weekend.

Although it's still early in the season to see snow, Knutsvig said forecasts for the end of the month show warmer temperatures and a return to more typical fall weather.
