From the National Weather Service office in Grand Forks:

The first accumulating snow of the season is possible this weekend.

A storm system will form in the Colorado Rockies on Saturday, then move into the northern plains on Saturday night and Sunday. Precipitation may begin as rain on Saturday before mixing with or changing to snow on Saturday night.

Accumulating snow is possible along with increasing winds on Saturday night that may cause reduced visibilities in blowing snow if enough cold air moves into the region.

At this time it appears the Devils Lake basin into northeast North Dakota could receive snow accumulations and the potential for blowing snow. The exact track of this storm is still uncertain, so stay tuned to later forecasts if you have travel plans this weekend.
