After a weekend winter storm dumped 9.5 inches of snow in Bismarck, forecasters are predicting a week filled with warmer temperatures.

The entire southern part of the state saw a "decent amount of snow" from Saturday's winter storm, according to Megan Jones, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Bismarck.

Most of the region saw anywhere from 7 to 11 inches, she said.

The storm forced the closure of Interstate 94 from Jamestown to Fargo overnight Saturday, but it was reopened around 9 a.m. Sunday. A travel alert remained in effect Sunday afternoon for Bismarck and surrounding areas due to slippery road conditions.

Jones said Bismarck will warm up to about 30 degrees by Tuesday, which will be the "nicest day" of the week, with a forecast high temperature of 37 degrees.

Another winter storm is possible mid-week, but as of Sunday, no snow is expected in Bismarck, according to Jones.

"There’s definitely a lot of uncertainty," she said, of the predicted winter storm. "In the next two days it could change and we could be getting precipitation in Bismarck."
