Friday's forecast for the region.
StormTRACKER Weather

The eastern Dakotas and southwestern Minnesota will see heavy snow Friday and Friday evening. Most of these areas will pick up 4-8" of fresh snow with some isolated spots picking up even more. Fresh snow could make for some good riding if you are taking out the snowmobile this weekend. Not ideal for ice fishing with so many lakes already having a decent amount of snow slowing down the ice making process.

The breeze will pick up for most of North Dakota. The Devils Lake area could be a tough place to fish with all of the fresh snow from Friday and the strong winds forecast for Saturday.

I grew up in Minnesota and my love of the outdoors lead me on a path to becoming in meteorologist. I got my Bachelor of Science in meteorology at St. Cloud State University. I started out my career as a TV meteorologist in Bismarck at KX News in 2010. I left Bismarck for Fargo in the fall of 2015 where I've been since working for WDAY as well as The Forum.
