Various winter storm warnings and advisories are in effect for all
but far southwest North Dakota tonight.

Precipitation has tapered off over western North Dakota but continues
across most of central North Dakota early this evening. Snow,
heavy at times was falling in the north central. A mix of snow,
sleet and freezing rain was falling in the south central.

Earlier today, there were many reports of 3 to 5 inches of snow,
with isolated reports up to 7 inches mainly along and north of
Interstate 94.

Tonight, additional snow, sleet and freezing drizzle will
taper off from west to east across central North dakota.
Additional accumulations will range from around an inch or so from
Minot south to Bismarck and east to Jamestown and Oakes. One to
three inches are possible yet north and east of Minot to
Bottineau, Rolla and Rugby.

Expect difficult travel conditions across the north central where
roads will be slippery and snow covered. Gusty southeast winds
will create near whiteout conditions at times in the north
central through early evening. Elsewhere across western and
central North Dakota, roads will be very slippery due to a mix of
snow, sleet and freezing drizzle.
