Another Snow Event(s) Possible For North Dakota This Week
Final snowfall totals from this past week's three-day snowstorm have been released by the National Weather Service in Bismarck. They include:
Bismarck had 18.3 inches of snow.
Minot 36.0 inches of snow and they received another 10 inches yesterday.
Regent 20.0 inches of snow.
Dickinson had 29.2 inches of snow.
Underwood had 24.3 inches of snow.
Hazen had 24.6 inches of snow.
New Salem had 22.5 inches of snow.
Glen Ullin received 22.0 inches of snow.
Some record snowfall totals for most cities across the state in some capacity. We will be talking about the three-day blizzard from April 12th to April 14th, 2022 for many years to come.
Old man winter doesn't want to release his icy grip. The northern part of the state was hammered with another 10 plus inches of snow along the Highway 2 corridor on Easter Sunday. Thankfully, we only saw a little over an inch in Bismarck Mandan with plenty of wind that caused some travel issues early in the day.
Now, get set for even more winter this week as we head into the second half of April. YIKES. We have not one but two chances for more white stuff this week, and one of those could be a significant snow event in western North Dakota. It all starts Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning. We have a slight chance of rain and some accumulating snow. Likely a dusting to an inch. Then the potential bigger snow event begins Friday into Sunday. It's likely to be mostly a rain event in Bismarck Mandan but Saturday night into Sunday we could see some accumulating snow and wind as a cold front moves through the area.
We will melt some snow this week with temps above freezing but I think it's going to be a while before we see some serious melting temperatures, unfortunately.
