Meteorologists are anticipating another storm to start sometime Tuesday that could produce twice of what’s on the ground already from a weekend system.
“There are numerous winters where we get a big push at the end,” said Daryl Ritchison, meteorologist with WDAY.
Ritchison said base snowfall along Interstate 94 in Stutsman County could be anywhere from 8 inches to double digits.
“Yeah, there is some potential with this one (storm cell) far more than any one this winter,” he said.
The storm will most likely start Tuesday evening, and move into Wednesday morning. Wednesday has the potential to bring blizzard-like conditions as well.
Ritchison said it will take consistent 35 mph winds to make it a blizzard. That likely won’t happen as winds look to be around 25 mph Wednesday with gusts up to 35 mph.
Jamestown received 7 inches of snow in the weekend storm, according to Jamestown Regional Airport.
As of Monday morning the Buffalo Scenic Road was closed until further notice.
