Late Season Blizzard Expected To Bring 2-Feet Of Snow In Upper North-Central US Over The Weekend

 A major storm will bring heavy late-season snow and blizzard conditions from portions of the northern and central Plains to the Upper Midwest from Friday to Sunday night. While some of the snow will melt at times on area roads, the heavy rate of snow and gusty winds will cause extensive blowing and drifting snow and difficult, if not impossible, travel conditions for an extended period of time this weekend.buffalo-snow

The worst travel conditions are likely to be centered on, but not limited to, the Interstate 35 and 90 corridors.

Airline passengers should anticipate major flight delays and a high number of flight cancellations centered on the major hub of Minneapolis.

The area likely to receive between 6 and 12 inches of snow is forecast to extend from eastern Montana to northeastern Wyoming, much of South Dakota, southern North Dakota, northern Nebraska, much of southern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin.

Blizzard conditions are projected from much of Nebraska, South Dakota and southern North Dakota to central and southern Minnesota to northern Wisconsin.


The storm has the potential to bring 1 to 2 feet of snow to part of the same area that is likely to experience blizzard conditions
