Parts of the region will be under a winter storm watch effective Friday afternoon through Saturday morning as a strong storm system could bring freezing rain, snow and strong winds to eastern North Dakota and northwest Minnesota.

The main snow band will affect areas along and north of Highway 2 the hardest, with 2 to 5 inches of new snowfall possible. South of Highway 2 will see 1 to 2 inches at best. Strong northwest winds could possibly gust up to 45 mph, causing reduced visibilities.

NWS says a mix of freezing rain, rain and snow is forecast to develop in the Devils Lake basin Friday morning, spreading east and south changing over to all snow by Friday afternoon and into Friday evening.

Depending on how much snow falls, significant blowing and drifting is possible.

A winter storm watch means that there is a potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that could affect travel.
