This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of eastern North Dakota, west central and northwest Minnesota.
DAY ONE...Today and Tonight
1 to 4 inches of snow today into tonight, locally higher possible in west central Minnesota. Hazardous wind chills in the 25 below to 35 below zero range.
DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday
The main issue will be blowing snow potential Thursday late into Friday night, mainly in the Red River valley and eastern North Dakota. North to northwest winds will increase to 20 to 35 mph and this will cause blowing snow. The question will be how severe and widespread will the visibility reductions be. That is uncertain still.
Wind chills will remain hazardous and occasional drop to lower than 40 below zero Friday.
