Storm threat diminishes

Warmer temperatures at the surface and lighter precipitation than originally anticpated means that snowfall with this current system will be much less than anticipated over far northern North Dakota into far northwest Minnesota.  Rain and snow will change over to all snow today along the Canadian border where several inches of new snow is still expected.  Areas farther south from near Devils Lake to Grand Forks to Bemidji will see a mixture of light rain and light snow...with light rain predominate in the Red River valley.   Farther south toward Fargo and into lakes country of west central Minnesota spotty rain showers will occur today.   Colder air will move tonight changing any precipitation to light snow before ending.   Rivers are rising so those with river interests should monitor the web and river statements.
