No-travel advisory lifted for eastern North Dakota

FARGO — North Dakota's Transportation Department has lifted a no travel advisory for eastern North Dakota as a late-winter storm moves out of the area.

Officials are still urging motorists to be cautious because of snow and scattered ice on roadways. Roads in northeastern South Dakota also are reported to be slippery.

The storm brought several inches of snow and strong winds to the region Sunday and Monday, shutting down schools, businesses and government offices.

Cold weather is expected to linger for a bit longer. The forecast calls for wind chills in central and eastern North Dakota as low as 30 degrees below zero overnight into Wednesday.

Things were dramatically different a year ago. The Forum newspaper reports that on March 18, 2012, the temperature in Fargo hit 78 degrees.
