Any snow fall during the day light hours today is expected to be in northwestern into north central North Dakota that will then impact areas in northeastern North Dakota to northwestern North Dakota tonight into tomorrow morning.    Any precipitation today in eastern North Dakota is expected to be in the form of rain, or mostly rain (perhaps mixed with some snow at times).

Most of tomorrow and Thursday look dry with some probability of snow fall on Friday with a disturbance coming in out of Canada.  That precipitation if it does develop is associated in someways with a warm front that is expected to lead to a significant warm up on Saturday.   There still appears to be a significant storm brewing that will impact the upper midwest and northern plains to differing degrees around April 1 of next week.
