The National Weather Service says a winter storm system in the Plains is expected to drop significant rainfall in the southern Red River Valley of North Dakota.

Forecasters say up to 1½ inches of rain could fall, and it will run off quickly into rivers and streams because of already saturated soil. Some rivers might rise above flood stage, including in the Fargo area.

The rain is expected to change to snow by Thursday night, and there is a chance of significant accumulations in southwest, south central and parts of eastern North Dakota.
