A blizzard warning is a severe weather alert issued by the National Weather Service (NWS) when the conditions for a blizzard are expected to occur or are already occurring in a particular area. A blizzard is a winter storm characterized by strong winds (at least 35 mph) and blowing snow, which result in reduced visibility (less than 1/4 mile) for at least 3 hours. Blizzard conditions can create dangerous and life-threatening situations, including power outages, transportation disruptions, and hypothermia. It’s important to take blizzard warnings seriously and follow the recommendations of local authorities to stay safe during these events.
A snowstorm cautioning is currently active for the western portion of our locale, including the urban communities of Terrific Forks and Fargo. Winter storm admonitions stay as a result for the eastern part of our locale.
Snow will start to move into the locale during the day on Tuesday and will go on through Wednesday Night prior to easing off. The snow might be weighty on occasion, and absolute snowfall aggregations of 6 to 12 inches (with locally higher sums) will be possible across the majority of the area.
The snowstorm cautioning has been given as winds are supposed to increment recognizably over the course of the following 24 hours, with blasts up to 40 mph likely by the late evening Tuesday. Winds may blast much higher on Tuesday Night and Wednesday. This will prompt far and wide blowing and floating snow which will enormously affect travel.
The breezes will probably start to reduce on Thursday, however blasts north of 30 mph will stay conceivable into early Thursday night.
