Jamestown woke up Saturday to an inch or so of new snow but that doesn't mean the storm system missed us, according to Alex Edwards, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Bismarck.
"The heaviest stuff is yet to come," he said, during an interview at 8 a.m. Saturday. "The snow will be fairly heavy today."
To the south, heavier snow fell overnight with Ellendale, N.D. reporting 3 inches and Aberdeen, S.D. reporting about 6 inches as of 7 a.m. The weather system that brought that snow is approaching the I-94 corridor, including the Jamestown area, early Saturday morning.
Snow, ice and wind, prompted the North Dakota Department of Transportation to issue a no travel advisory for Dickey, Logan and McIntosh counties during the overnight hours. A no travel advisory is also in effect for western North Dakota including the cities of Williston, Watford City, Dickinson, Beach, Bowman, Bismarck, Mandan and surrounding areas.
Dispatchers at the Stutsman County Communications Center reported no traffic accidents in Jamestown since midnight and that street department sanding trucks had been out.
