There's a warm weather stretch ahead, but part of the valley is under a winter weather advisory Monday night. Officials say snow and winds gusting between 25 and 35 miles an hour could create dangerous driving conditions.

It was so nice outside Monday, some were enjoying the weather while ice skating. Most of the valley got less than an inch of snow in the last 24 hours, but another one to two inches will be coming down Monday night.

That snow and high winds are creating a Winter Weather Advisory from Devils Lake to Fargo to Fergus Falls. If you are driving through those areas Monday, be sure to go slow.

Mark Ewens with the National Weather Service said, "With the freshly fallen snow, visibility in the open country in particular will probably get a little low at times late Monday into Tuesday. Certainly not a blizzard by any stretch of the imagination but just something for folks to remember we've warmed up a little bit, temperatures are nicer, but that doesn't necessarily mean that travel can't still be a problem."

Officials say we're supposed to reach highs in the double digits for the foreseeable forecast. Another light flurry is on deck for Wednesday.
