While the heaviest snow is to the west the Red River Valley is getting its fair share. The latest forecast calls for a total of up to eight inches of snow in Grand Forks.

So far the weather service says about five inches of snow has fallen at their office. Combined with the wind, it was enough for many schools to cancel or dismiss early. The snow is not expected stop until early Tuesday morning. City plows are out making sure the major roads are cleared. They hope to hit all the streets in Grand Forks by late this evening and continue to plow all night, making tomorrow's in-town commute easier. This is the third Monday of the last four weeks where there has been a storm. Street Superintendent Mark Aubol asks that people give plows room to do there job and maintain a safe distance.
