Thanksgiving 2010 Weather Woes

A large, but relatively fast moving storm system, will impact the weather across the Red River Valley and adjacent lakes region through Thanksgiving Day. Through the day Thursday, the higher snow amounts are expected north of the U.S. Highway 2 corridor, with lesser amounts to the south. Refer to the Weather Story below for details. Although wind speeds are expected to stay below blizzard strength, there will be enough drifting and blowing snow to reduce the visibility, especially in the open country. After this storm moves out of the area late on Friday, the weekend looks fairly quiet and seasonally cold.  Holiday travelers need to monitor future forecasts and statements.
