The National Weather Service in Bismarck has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory for blowing snow... which is in effect until 6 PM
CST this evening.
* Timing... through 6 PM this evening.
* Winds/visibility... gusts to 45 mph with near zero visibilities
in blowing snow during the pre-dawn hours. Visibilities to a
half mile in blowing snow can be expected during the day.
Visibilities will be worst in open areas.
* Impacts... dangerous... if not impossible travel.
* Wind chills... to 20 below zero.
A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds
and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout
conditions... making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If
you must travel... have a winter survival kit with you. If you get
stranded... stay with your vehicle.
A Winter Weather Advisory for blowing snow means that
visibilities will be limited due to strong winds blowing snow
around. Use caution when traveling... especially in open areas.
