Blizzard Watch
Statement as of 2:34 PM CST on March 02, 2015

... Blizzard watch in effect from Tuesday morning through Tuesday
afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Grand Forks has issued a blizzard
watch... which is in effect from Tuesday morning through Tuesday
afternoon.

* Timing... Tuesday morning through Tuesday afternoon.

* Winds... northwest winds 30 to 35 mph with gusts to near 50 mph
possible by sunrise.

* Visibilities... may be reduced to less than one quarter mile at
times... especially in open country.

* Snow accumulations... from 1 to 4 inches with large variations
from south to north... with highest amounts in southern portions
of counties.

* Other impacts... zero visibility is possible for the Tuesday
morning commute when increasing winds combine with falling snow.
In addition... dangerous wind chills will develop Tuesday night.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A blizzard watch means there is a potential for falling and/or
blowing snow with strong winds and extremely poor visibilities.
This can lead to whiteout conditions and make travel very
dangerous.





Special Statement
Statement as of 11:16 AM CST on March 02, 2015

... Strong cold front late tonight will bring a return to hard winter...

A strong cold front will sweep across the region late tonight and
Tuesday morning. Northwest winds will increase behind the
front... with sustained winds around 30 mph and gusts to 45 mph in
the vicinity of... and west of... the Red River valley on Tuesday.
In addition... general snow amounts of 1 to 3 inches of snow are
possible late tonight into Tuesday morning... with increasing
confidence of an area of 3 to 5 inches along and southeast of a
Park Rapids to Fergus Falls to Wahpeton line. Combined with the
strong winds... the snow and blowing snow may lead to near blizzard
conditions and hazardous travel in the far southern Red River
valley and lakes country. The expected onset of deteriorating
travel conditions will be early Tuesday morning into Tuesday
afternoon... including the morning commute.

If you are planning to travel over the region Monday night or
Tuesday... please monitor the latest forecasts and statements.
