Winter Storm Affecting the Region Through this Evening

A strong low pressure system will continue to track northeastward across the region through this evening. Snow may drop the visibility down to a half or three quarters of a mile for a while, mainly east of Interstate 29 this morning. Most other snow today will be light. However, blowing and drifting snow will be a problem northwest of a line from Pickstown South Dakota to Marshall Minnesota, as northwest winds continue at 20 to 30 mph, with gusts of 35 to 40 mph. Travel in this area will be difficult, and many businesses and schools have been closed.
