...ICY ROADS LEADING TO HAZARDOUS TRAVEL POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON
THROUGH THURSDAY MORNING...

Westerly winds gusting from 20 to 35 mph are expected this
afternoon through early this evening across western and central
North Dakota. Snow that is not crusted over will drift freely
across highways during the afternoon, melt as temperatures rise
into the mid 30s, then refreeze late in the afternoon and evening
as temperatures fall below freezing.

These conditions could create icy roads and possibly hazardous
travel. North to south orientated highways will be at greatest
risk, as westerly winds will maximize the amount of drifting snow.
Roads that become icy late Wednesday afternoon will likely remain
that way through Thursday morning.

Plan ahead and allow extra time for travel this afternoon through
Thursday morning.
