IT’LL FEEL NICE! With the wind not howling and temperatures in the teens (we’re on a 30-degree watch for Friday!) today and tomorrow will feel like spring. Don’t get comfortable though, as we haven’t seen the last of Ol’ Man Winter. We address that in the forecast and other near term outdoors events in today’s Three Things.

SNOW SLAP! Don’t look now, but the weekend holds more snow for our region. While the worst will fall to the south and east, there’s a chance at significant accumulations for most of ND as well through Sunday – and then the winds pick up. Spring remains on hold.
TIME’S TICKIN’ Ice anglers have just nine days to remove their permanent houses from the hardwater. With Saturday (and maybe next Wednesday?) dropping another dumping of snow, the slight warm-up between now and Friday night will be the best time to get it done against the deadline.
