Michael Yellow Bird crosses Mandan Street in Bismarck on Friday morning with a variety of snow removal tools while on his way to another job clearing away the nearly 3 inches of snow that fell overnight in the Bismarck-Mandan area. "In 24 to 36 hours from now, all this will be gone," Yellow Bird said.

The Bismarck area dodged the brunt of this week's spring snow storm, leaving only about 3 inches in the city.

Other areas in the state saw far higher snowfall totals, including:

• Ashley: 12.9 inches as of 8 a.m. Friday

• Ellendale: 12 inches as of 3:40 p.m. Friday

• Edgeley: 11 inches as of 7 a.m. Friday

• South Fargo: 9.5 inches as of 6 a.m. Friday

• Lisbon: 9.3 inches as of 8 a.m. Friday

• Napoleon: 7 inches as of 8 a.m. Friday

• Selfridge: 7 inches as of 10 a.m. Friday

The snow created slick road conditions in Bismarck. Between 6 p.m. Thursday and 1 p.m. Friday, there were about 50 crashes, according to Bismarck police Lt. Luke Gardiner.

Temperatures are expected to increase over the weekend, with highs in the upper 40s. Ken Simosko, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Bismarck, said there could be a “light wintry mix” Sunday night in the form of “some rain, maybe some snow" in Burleigh County.

Another potential snow storm could take place late Tuesday night into Wednesday, Simosko said, however, it's hard to determine where the storm could go and the severity of it.

"It could be one of those where we might not see anything or we could see some snow and rain," he said.
