...VERY STRONG WINDS WITH ACCUMULATING SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW
POSSIBLE SUNDAY ACROSS EAST CENTRAL NORTH DAKOTA...

VERY STRONG WINDS LATE SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY WITH GUSTS
OVER 50 MPH ARE POSSIBLE. ACCUMULATING SNOW IS ALSO ANTICIPATED...
AND THE COMBINATION OF STRONG WINDS AND FALLING SNOW MAY LEAD TO
POOR VISIBILITY FROM THE TURTLE MOUNTAINS SOUTH TO THE JAMES RIVER
VALLEY.

WITH AREAS OF REDUCED VISIBILITY IN SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW...THERE
IS THE POTENTIAL FOR NEAR BLIZZARD CONDITIONS. MUCH UNCERTAINTY
REMAINS AT THIS TIME ON THE AMOUNT OF SNOW AND THE STRENGTH OF
THE WINDS.

THOSE PLANNING TRAVEL ACROSS NORTH DAKOTA ON SUNDAY SHOULD CHECK
THE LATEST FORECASTS AND ROAD CONDITIONS BEFORE SETTING OUT.
