SHIFTING. We’ll see a change in the wind leading to some accumulating snow tomorrow. We take a look at where we’re at with the white stuff and how runoff may (or may not) affect your spring fishing and a CRP deadline drawing near in our Outdoors Roundup.

LAST CALL. Signup for the largest Conservation Reserve Program enrollment of nearly 8 million available acres draws to a close this week. For more, visit the USDA Farm Service Agency’s CRP info page.
THE OPEN WEST. A lack of snow in the Missouri basin and the river’s Montana tributaries suggests limited runoff this spring, barring any major weather events in the coming weeks. Good news for those reservoirs running high and the river running fast for the past year.
ANOTHER MIDWEEK DIP. Following Monday’s snow, we’ll see a familiar February pattern develop with a dip into sub-zero temperatures and a recovery into next weekend. It looks like four inches are in line on most of the models for the middle of ND, with higher totals possible along the ND/SD border.
