3/3/15: Quick Update

The snow either has or will be ending soon in southeastern North Dakota.

8:00 AM Radar

The Wind in combination with the snow that did fall (1-2″ near the SD/ND Border) will create areas of blowing snow and reduced visibility.  A winter weather advisory is posted for that through the day.  More snow and higher wind in South Dakota should create even tougher conditions and therefore a Blizzard Warning has been issued for much of eastern South Dakota through southwestern Minnesota.

Advisories as of 8:00 AM


Wind speeds this morning are in the 20 to 30 mph range with higher gusts and that type of wind should remain through the morning hours with some weakening this afternoon.  Western North Dakota has already experienced the worst of the wind and should see 10-25 mph wind through the day.

Wind Speed at 8:00 AM

Low temperatures the next couple of mornings will have -10s potential in many locations with warmer weather still expected this weekend.
