Relief from arctic temperatures won't last as a second cold front moves into the Grand Forks region for the weekend
The Grand Forks area will see a high of 5 degrees and a low of 0 today, but wind chill temperatures are projected to drop into the 20s below zero this weekend.
Grand Forks residents saw some relief this morning, Dec. 12, from the arctic weather snap early in the week, with a high of 5 degrees and a low of 0 degrees. Cold temperatures will return Friday night, however, as a cold front moves into the area; the frigid temps are expected to last through the weekend. Wind chills are projected to drop into the 20s below zero Saturday night, according to the National Weather Service.
Light snow left a dusting of accumulation Thursday morning, and another round of snow will move into the Devils Lake Basin Thursday night and continue into Friday. It is expected to result in 1 to 2 inches of accumulation.
One to 3 inches are expected Friday evening along the I-94 corridor, with a few isolated spots expected to get more than 3 inches. Blowing snow Friday afternoon and into Saturday could reduce visibility to a mile.
