...Wintry mix possible early this morning followed by accumulating snow later Monday into Tuesday will impact early Christmas travel...

Snow is expected to develop early this Monday morning over western North Dakota and spread eastward into central North Dakota. Light freezing rain or sleet will be possible before this changeover to all snow at places like Williston...Minot... Killdeer...Glen Ullin and Elgin. Travel may be slowed due to slippery roads.

Along and east of Highway 83...areas of fog and patchy freezing drizzle can be expected to continue early this morning. Places like Jamestown...Rugby Harvey...Rolla and Linton will likely see slippery roads due to the patchy freezing drizzle...or fog droplets that freeze on roads and walkways.

For later this Monday...snow is expected across much of the area. The greatest amounts...up to four inches...will be across the southwest on Monday...and the James River Valley Monday and Tuesday. Those with travel plans should allow extra time to reach their destinations. Much of the region outside of North Dakota will also be impacted by this storm system.
