National Weather Service predicts average winter for our area
FARGO - This year's winter likely will fall within the unusually harsh winter of 2010-11 and the freakishly mild winter of 2011-12.

"We're predicting a near normal winter," Greg Gust, a warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Service said Wednesday.
