Cold and Snow?

Today and tomorrow will be very chilly across much of the northern plains.  In fact, some flakes in the higher elevations in central and western North Dakota wouldn’t surprise me tonight.  In turn,  the threat of frost and or a freeze will certainly be possible today through Friday, with northern North Dakota and northern Minnesota… Read more Cold and Snow?

Snow Season

This past Sunday it snowed across much of southern North Dakota.  It did not accumulate in Fargo, but it did in Bismarck.   Getting snow on April 25 is later than average, but probably not as late as you may think.  The average last date of accumulating snow in Bismarck is on April 18, meaning Sunday’s… Read more Snow Season

Lack of Snow

Most of you likely remember that we have had three Octobers in a row with a fairly significant snow storm in North Dakota.  I mention this because, the 4.2 inches that fell last October 20 has been the highest snow total of this season in Fargo.

Mostly a Miss

Although there will be some exceptions in the southwestern portion of the state and near the North Dakota/South Dakota border, the over hyped weekend storm in the end, will produced little or no snowfall for much of the state of North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota.  Although we will remain below average, the lack of additional… Read more Mostly a Miss

Late Snow

The snowfall this week in many locations brings questions about late season snow events.  Not getting April snow is what is unusual, not recording it.  In recent days, some areas recorded zero snow, some location just some flakes in the air that melted on contact, but other areas recorded several inches.  Back in 2008, Fargo… Read more Late Snow
