Volunteers who spent Tuesday building dikes in Fargo-Moorhead woke up this morning to find their work blanketed by several inches of snow, and more was falling, further complicating the flood fight.

About 3 inches of snow had fallen by 7 a.m. in the metro area, and the National Weather Service predicts 5 to 8 inches total from Fargo north to Grand Forks before the storm diminishes this evening.

A winter storm warning remains in effect until 3 p.m.

The combination of heavy snow on top of roads made icy from frozen rain prompted no travel advisories in many counties, including Cass.

Fargo Public Schools and Oak Grove Lutheran School were among those that canceled classes today, and West Acres mall announced it wouldn't open.
