Temperature will determine how much is rain, or snow. Couple inches possible.

    Late Thursday and into Friday, Crookston and a wide swath of the northern Red River Valley and U.S. Highway 2 corridor is going to get some precipitation.

    The temperature will determine if it’s mostly rain, rain mixed with snow, or all snow. The National Weather Service forecast office is predicting that the weather system set to roll through the Devils Lake region and head Crookston’s way will have a bit of all three, and that it won’t be surprising if 1 to 3 inches of snow accumulates on Friday.

    A winter weather advisory has been issued for the Devils Lake area, but the NWS at this point has released only a “special weather statement” for Crookston and regions to the north, south and east.

    Temperatures as the system passes through will be in the 33 to 36-degree range.

    A rainy pattern is expected to continue through the middle of next week.
