GRAND FORKS — Snow is expected to move across central North Dakota on Friday, Dec. 2.

Up to 2 inches of snow is expected in some parts of the Red River Valley, with slightly more in a few Minnesota locations, according to the National Weather Service.

Snowfall is anticipated to begin around 10 a.m. until around 12 p.m. in the Devils Lake area and 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. in the Grand Forks and Fargo areas.

Northwest winds will increase up to 40 miles per hour as the snowfall ends.

Though the anticipated snowfall is fairly minimal, "any snow that does fall to the ground will be blowing around," according to Dillon Vogt at WDAY.


Some drifts are expected, with possible blowing snow reducing visibility throughout open country.

“The wind is going to bring dangerously cold wind chill advisories for tonight," Vogt said.

Overnight, wind chill will fall in the range of 20 to 30 below zero.
