High winds, snow expected for western ND tonight
Western North Dakota will see high winds but should dodge a blizzard that will bring low visibility to the eastern side of the state.
The National Weather Service in Bismarck issued a high wind warning Saturday for the far west and south central part of the state. A clipper will bring strong, northwest winds around 40 mph with gust exceeding 50 mph.
North central and eastern North Dakota is also under a blizzard warning with similar wind speeds. The storm could drop 2 to 4 inches of snow, presenting low visibility for motorists. Travel will become extremely hazardous, if not impossible, through Sunday, National Weather Service meteorologist Michael Mathews said.
Both warnings are set to expire at 8 p.m. today.
Western North Dakota could see an inch of snow. Roads could also become icy Sunday night after temperatures dip below zero.
