Rain is expected to impact especially eastern North Dakota today. It will mix with snow in some areas with locations from Ashley to Jamestown to Cooperstown, to northwestern Minnesota having the highest probability of some accumulating snow. Although snow is accumulating on roads this morning, most of the day, the roads should be wet in those areas, with the prospect of some snow and ice on the roads once again this evening. Anything left overnight will quickly melt on Friday.
The rain/snow will move to the northeast today with the most of the recorded moisture done by early afternoon, although, so light rain or snow will linger thereafter.
Although maximums on Friday will not be all that warm in comparison to temperatures of the past several weeks, the highs tomorrow will not be all that much below average for the time of year. Temperatures will warm to many locations to 50° or warmer Saturday and into the 50s for most of North Dakota on Sunday.
Looking beyond the precipitation from today, the next threat looks to be in the November 11 through 13 time frame with temperatures above average from Saturday through Tuesday.
