This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of eastern North
Dakota, west central and northwest Minnesota.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Freezing rain is expected across the area late this evening into
the overnight hours. Icy roads and hazardous travel will be the
main impacts where road temperatures remain below freezing.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Strong north winds and snow showers, with gusts up to 55 mph,
will follow the passage of a cold front Wednesday morning. These
strong winds will diminish Wednesday afternoon. The wind, when
combined with the snow showers, will cause visibilities to drop
below a half mile at times, especially in open country.

The active weather pattern continues Thursday and into the
weekend with additional chances for wintry weather. There is a
lot of uncertainty with the details of each event. A couple of
these systems could produce several inches of snowfall.
