Light snow continues to fall in the Fargo-Moorhead area Saturday, with another weather system on the way, after a record-setting snowfall Friday.

Less than a half inch of new snow is expected Saturday afternoon, and another half inch could fall overnight. Temperatures are expected to be near freezing and dip to 19 Saturday night, according to the National Weather Service in Grand Forks, N.D.

The snow is in addition to a record 7.6 inches that fell in the F-M area Friday. The snowfall broke the record for the date, which previously set in 1898 with 2.2 inches.

"The stubborn, slow-moving weather system that produced snow across the region the past two days has finally begun to move off," the weather service reported on its Web site Saturday. "However, one more weak system dropping south from Manitoba will continue light snow across the valley region into tonight."

The weather service predicts another system to move into the region Monday and bring more snow, especially in the northern Red River Valley, along with possible windy conditions. Widespread rain and snow also is possible later next week.

Travelers should heed weather announcements and pay attention to updates as the region's weather remains unsettled, the weather service said.
