Another Prolonged Snow Event

An upper low dropping from Manitoba into central North Dakota late today and then to southeast South Dakota by late Monday will spread snow over the region today into Monday.   The snow will mostly on the light side...but the long nature of the event will cause snowfall totals to reach 3 to 6 inches from Devils Lake east across the northern Red River valley to the Lake of the Woods region.   Heavier precipitation is still forecast to develop this afternoon through Monday over far southeast North Dakota into west central Minnesota where 6 to 10 inches are expected....with the highest totals likely in an area from Detroit Lakes to Fergus Fallls to Alexandria.   WInds today will become north and increase to 15 to 30 mph in the Red River valley and eastern North Dakota but remain light in Minnesota east of the valley.   Temperatures will drop today especially west of the valley as much colder air moves in.
