Forecast calls for spring tomorrow, winter Sunday and Monday
It’s going to feel like spring Saturday, but the feeling isn’t expected to last long.
The National Weather Service issued a special weather statement Friday, and a Bismarck-based meteorologist said rain and snow will move into southwest North Dakota on Sunday night and continue into Monday morning along with gusty winds, possibly causing hazardous driving conditions.
Ken Simosko with the National Weather Service in Bismarck said the amount of precipitation the area could see is unknown, though the potential for the heaviest rainfall and snowfall is expected to be south of Interstate 94.
“Until we can get a better handle on that, it’s one of those things where you can see a little or you can see a heck of a lot,” Simosko said.
He encouraged residents to keep an eye on the weather throughout the weekend as conditions could change abruptly.
Meanwhile, Saturday is expected to be a nice spring day with sunny conditions and temperatures in the mid-50s.
“Spring is trying to develop, but we’re in that transition phase for the next month, month and a half,” Simosko said.
He added that temperatures are expected to be on the cool side throughout next week.
