About 1 to 3 inches of snow is expected early this week in the Red River Valley as temperatures briefly rise above zero.

Monday afternoon brings the potential of 1 to 2 inches of new snow accumulation, according to the National Weather Service. There is an 80 percent chance of precipitation Monday.

The dusting is expected to continue Tuesday with the potential for about an inch of snow between 1 a.m. and noon.

"This really is more typical for a January snow here," said Meteorologist Bill Barrett.

The system is expected to move west to east quickly, Barrett said. Temperatures are expected to fall back below zero by Tuesday night.

Grand Forks could see its coldest temperatures of the year in the wake of the storm. Barrett said temperatures could drop to around 26 below overnight Thursday. He said temperatures generally plunge to their lowest point two days after a storm moves through.

Temperatures are expected to rise this weekend, with highs in the 20-degree range early next week.
