Friday's forecast for the region.

The eastern Dakotas and southwestern Minnesota will see heavy snow Friday and Friday evening. Most of these areas will pick up 4-8" of fresh snow with some isolated spots picking up even more. Fresh snow could make for some good riding if you are taking out the snowmobile this weekend. Not ideal for ice fishing with so many lakes already having a decent amount of snow slowing down the ice making process.
