Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 1:35 PM MST Jan. 17, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Icy roads leading to hazardous travel possible this afternoon
through Thursday morning...

Westerly winds gusting from 20 to 35 mph will continue through
early evening across western and central North Dakota. Snow that
is not crusted over will drift freely across highways, melt with
temperatures in the mid and upper 30s, then refreeze late this
afternoon and evening as temperatures fall below freezing.

These conditions could create icy roads and possibly hazardous
travel. North to south orientated highways will be at greatest
risk, as westerly winds will maximize the amount of drifting snow.
Roads that become icy late Wednesday afternoon will likely remain
that way through Thursday morning.

Plan ahead and allow extra time for travel this afternoon through
Thursday morning.
