Grand Forks in for wet, snowy weather, but snow totals still not clear
Grand Forks and the rest of eastern North Dakota are in for wet weather starting Sunday--though what, exactly, the coming storm will bring is still tough for experts to say.
Grand Forks and the rest of eastern North Dakota are in for wet weather starting Sunday-though what, exactly, the coming storm will bring is still tough for experts to say.
National Weather Service officials predict a 7-to-14 inch snowfall for the western side of the state as a storm moves through from Sunday through Tuesday, though warmer temperatures on the state's east side will dull those snowfall totals for the Grand Forks area.
Vince Godon, a weather service meteorologist in Grand Forks, said snow could range upward from 4 inches-though he stressed that forecasts can change with a temperature shift of just one or two degrees, meaning it's not clear how much precipitation will be rain and how much will be snow.
Temperatures will drop significantly between Sunday highs and Monday night lows-39 and 20 degrees, respectively-and National Weather Service officials suggested traveling with a winter survival kit and canceling unnecessary travel plans, especially on the west side of the state.
