Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 12:48 PM MST Jan. 16, 2018 – National Weather Service

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

Westerly winds gusting from 20 to 35 mph are expected Wednesday
afternoon through early Wednesday evening across western and
central North Dakota. Snow that is not crusted over will drift
freely across highways during the afternoon, melt as temperatures
rise into the mid 30s, then refreeze late in the 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 Wednesday afternoon
through Thursday morning.
