Weather is the topic of discussion in the listening area, as we are in a blizzard warning until 1 AM Friday.
According to the National Weather Service in Grand Forks, mixed precipitation or light snow is expected early, followed by blizzard conditions. Total snow accumulations of 3 to 10 inches are possible, with amounts of 12 inches in isolated areas possible and ice accumulations of a light glaze expected. Meteorologists expect winds gusts as high as 60 miles per hour.
Strong winds could cause extensive damage to trees and power lines. Be prepared for power failure.
Plan for slippery road conditions. Areas of blowing snow are expected to significantly reduce visibility in open country. The hazardous conditions will impact the morning commute. If you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you. If you become stranded, stay with your vehicle.
Quite a few highways are under no travel advisories
