Special Statement

Statement as of 6:08 AM CDT on October 24, 2017

Expires 7:15 PM EDT on October 24, 2017


... Gusty winds and light snow Thursday into Thursday night...

North winds gusting to 40 to 50 mph are expected along and west
of the Red River valley Thursday into Thursday evening. These
strong winds will also bring down colder air, allowing the light
rain to mix with and change to light snow, especially Thursday
afternoon into Thursday evening. At this point, it appears that
most of the area can expect a dusting to an inch or two of snow
during this time frame.

There are other impacts to consider as well. Wind chill readings
are expected to dip into the single digits above zero by Friday
morning. Ground temperatures will be warm initially, but as air
temperatures fall Thursday night into Friday morning, and with
the continued gusty north winds, roads could become slick in
spots. Light snow falling with strong winds could also result in
low visibilities. Stay tuned for additional information on this
system over the next few days, but be prepared.
