Let’s start off with a quick statement from the National Weather Service in Grand Forks about weather in Thief River Falls, “Expect an inch or two of snow along with winds up to around 35 mph leading to blowing snow. With those wind speeds and snow amounts we are not expected persistent blizzard conditions in Thief River Falls so no Blizzard Warning for Thief. Still expecting blowing snow with reduced visibility tomorrow, just not continuous blizzard conditions in your area.”
Now a more general statement for the area.
Look for deteriorating conditions tonight into Wednesday morning as a strong cold front brings a blast of Arctic air into the region. Along the leading edge of this front, a brief period of snow will impact the region, along with gusty north winds. Look for sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph, especially within the Red River Valley and areas to the west. The morning commute will experience impacts with difficult travel likely from Grand Forks southward.
