Measuring how much melt sinks into soil an inexact science
FARGO – The science of measuring how much of a spring snowmelt has sunk into soil – a crucial part of flood predictions – is far from perfect, and it’s one of the reasons forecasting the Red River’s rise has been difficult this year.
Near-blizzard conditions expected in valley through early Monday
The National Weather Service in Grand Forks issued a winter storm warning that included the entire state of North Dakota and parts of western Minnesota about 6:30 a.m. Saturday. The storm is set to last until Monday morning.
FARGO – Spring in the Red River Valley suffered another cold and snowy setback Thursday as 2 to 10 inches of wet flakes fell on the northern edge of a more serious winter storm that continued to pound eastern South Dakota and much of southern Minnesota.
FARGO – Xcel Energy has sent five North Dakota crews to Sioux Falls, S.D., to assist with recovery from a major ice storm, and the Fargo Fire Department also has a dozen firefighters ready to respond if needed, officials said.
Data collected adds up to deluge of information
GRAND FORKS – Lugging a large modified rain gauge, Bill Barrett of the National Weather Service stepped outside his office here on Thursday to collect snow from a trodden field.

FARGO – Batten down the hatches: The metro area could see a 10-inch blasting of snow beginning this evening.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch effective through Tuesday morning for much of North Dakota and extending into Minnesota along Interstate 94.
FARGO – Recent snowstorms gave a substantial boost to spring flooding chances in the Red River Valley, especially in Fargo-Moorhead, where the river’s risk of topping major flood stage jumped to 79 percent in the National Weather Service’s flood outlook issued Thursday.
The Jan. 24 outlook predicted a 6 percent chance of exceeding Fargo’s major flood stage of 30 feet.
