Snow Travel

Posted: Updated:

The f-m area is under a winter weather advisory until late tonight, and with many people traveling for the holidays it could mean road conditions could affect your plans.

Weather conditions started to change when it started snowing late this afternoon, already in some areas the snow was just over an inch, and packed snow on the roads means that in some spots it will be icy.

Valley news live caught up with the north Dakota state patrol to talk about the conditions and the precautions drivers should be taking.

"before they get traveling to put on their seat belt, obey the posted speed limits, and then use common sense to drive for the conditions. A lot of times using your cruise control is not a good idea, making sure you have that proper following distance behind that other vehicle, we get a lot of rear end type crashes, where people are following too close." says Sgt.. Dave wolf.

The ND state patrol also told us just 45 minutes after the snow started, they started getting to calls of accidents.   There was a roll over in Cassleton as well as one in west Fargo that had three passengers brought to Essentia Health for non-life-threatening injuries.

If you are planning on doing some late night or early morning shopping, or just will be doing thanksgiving traveling, be sure to check road conditions before you go out.
