While not record-breaking, the temperatures in Dickinson are forecast to be much lower than average this weekend, with a storm system bringing in snow.

Dickinson can expect between 3-5 inches of snow.

"We're looking at snow to move in from the west to the east. It looks like Stark County and the Dickinson area is going to be in the middle of that ordeal ... It's going to develop later on tonight (Friday) and carry on into probably midday tomorrow (Saturday)," said Rick Krolak with the National Weather Service in Bismarck.

It is likely to start snowing after 5am Saturday morning, and the greatest chance for snow is during the day, with the chance of precipitation at 80%.

The system is hugging the southern end of the state, with Dickinson being on the northern end of it. South Dakota is expected to get the worst of it.

Temperatures will be below freezing, dropping into the single digits by the end of the weekend.

"(Friday night) we're looking for overnight lows somewhere around 10 to 15 (degrees), highs topping off mid to low 20s," Krolak said. "It looks like they're going to start going down into the single digits after the storm passes through Saturday night into Sunday, 5 to 10 above. After everything moves through, Sunday will top off at the 20 degree mark. Overnight, looking around zero."

Wind speeds are expected to pick up from 5 to 10 mph on Friday to 8 to 16 mph on Sunday with gusts as high as 25 mph. Negative wind chills are possible for the weekend.

"We're sitting 15 to 20 degrees below normal, from the overnight lows, and we're expecting that until the midweek next week and looks like we're going to, by that time, climb back into the 40s," Krolak said.
