NWS issues blizzard warning in northern North Dakota
That "arctic blast" in northeast North Dakota that the National Weather Service warned about has now turned into a blizzard.
The weather service has issued a blizzard warning for the northern half of North Dakota along with some border counties in Minnesota.
The blizzard is expected to last through 9 p.m. tonight.
"The snow and blowing snow will result in widespread visibilities of less the one quarter of a mile," the agency said. "Isolated white out conditions are also possible."
Driving conditions are expected to be improved though still hazardous east of Crookston and south of U.S. Highway 2 where visibility is a quarter to half mile.
