12/28/15: Living on the Edge

A significant snow storm is projected for locations southeast of North Dakota in the next couple of days.  A Winter Storm Warning has been posted for locations from near Sioux Falls, South Dakota through the Twin Cities and points south and east of that line.  Five to ten inches of snow will likely occur for many in the warned areas.  Although the southeastern portion of North Dakota may record some snow from this event, mainly on Tuesday, for the most part, this storm will be a non-issue for most of the state.

Projected Radar imagery for the day suggest the storm slowly lifting to the north and impacting southern Minnesota by late afternoon.  This first wave of snow will probably not move much farther north than what is indicated below.

There will be a secondary wave that will develop on Tuesday and it is during that time frame that parts of southeastern North Dakota into west central Minnesota may record at least some snowfall, albeit, quite light.  Otherwise, the rest of the week looks dry with temperatures close to seasonal averages.
