January is starting out with a bang—just like December ended.
The National Weather Service says that a band of snow is moving into northeastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota, with a wintry mix of light snow and light freezing rain moving into southeastern North Dakota and west Central Minnesota.
Snowfall amounts expected are lower than originally forecast, with the F-M metro forecast to get up to an inch of the wintry mix. Areas to the north and east of the metro are forecast to receive anywhere from one to four inches of snow through mid-morning Monday.
Roads will be impacted, the weather service says. Snow cover and ice will make travel tricky on the Monday morning commute.
