(Undated) - It will feel like winter rather than fall in parts of the county over the next couple days. The National Weather Service says a powerful storm system will sweep across the West, bringing heavy snow to the northern Rockies and northern Plains. Parts of Montana and Wyoming could get up to a foot of snow, while several inches are expected to fall across Colorado, Nebraska and the Dakotas. Temperatures will also plummet, with highs below freezing in many areas. Almost all of North Dakota will be under a winter storm watch come tomorrow morning ahead of a snowstorm that may make history. The National Weather Service in Bismarck says up to a foot of snow could fall tonight through tomorrow in Bismarck and Jamestown while some spots could see up to 18 inches. The Weather Service in Grand Forks says the storm is expected to bring two rounds of trouble to the area. Moderate to heavy snow is forecast for Friday and travel is expected to be significantly impacted.
A winter storm watch beginning Thursday morning through Saturday includes the cities of Detroit Lakes, Twin Valley, Moorhead, Fargo, Mahnomen, Waubun, Crookston, East Grand Forks, Thief River Falls, Ada, Warroad and Roseau.
