Significant Late Winter Storm Continues on track

 A powerful storm system continued to move out across the northern plains early this Thursday morning. The most significant snows will be south of the Interstate 94 / U.S. Highway 10 corridor of southeast North Dakota and west central Minnesota. Snow will be heavy at times, with total accumulations from 5 to 12 inches expected in southeast North Dakota into west central Minnesota by this evening, with the highest amounts close to the North and South Dakota border where over 1 foot is possible. Dangerous wind chills from 25 to 30 below are also expected for northeast North Dakota and northwest Minnesota today and tonight. Northerly winds will increase through the day, with blowing and drifting snow expected in the Red River Valley.

The storm will move out the area fairly quickly by evening, with snowfall rapidly diminishing. However, gusty northwest winds will combine with falling temperatures overnight, driving wind chill values to between 25 and 40 below zero by Friday morning.

Travel will likely be hazardous today in the Winter Storm Warning area. Stay tuned to NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio or your favorite source of weather information before setting out. Check with the appropriate State and Local road departments for any closures or travel restrictions.
