Snow possible in the Red River Valley by Thursday


Snow is possible throughout the region by the end of the week, according to the National Weather Service.

Tuesday will see milder weather, with highs in the 60s, but the weather service predicts that highs on Thursday will be in the 30s. Rain is predicted to turn into snowfall as the temperatures decrease.

Details about how long the snow will fall and how much the region could accumulate are still unclear, the weather service said. Snow is most likely to hit Thursday and Friday, but the weather service said it is possible Wednesday night and Saturday, also.

There is potential for heavy snow, which the weather service said could cause challenges for drivers.

The first snowstorm of last winter hit during the second week of October and dropped nearly 6 inches of snow in Grand Forks and 19 inches at the Air Force base.


The weather service said more details about the snow expected this week will be available as it gets closer to the storm.

In the meantime, a flood warning remains in effect for the Red River Basin. The Red River is expected to crest along East Grand Forks at 34.4 inches on Wednesday, Oct. 9.
