Northern Valley is Getting Pounded

Posted: Updated:

  Despite the fact the first day of spring is later this month, another blast of winter is rolling through the northern valley.

  The heaviest snow has been falling in far eastern North Dakota from Devils Lake to here, near Grafton along I-29 and points north. Some areas northwest of Grafton and near Devils Lake already had a foot of snow by noon.

  Those who didn't slow down were acquainted with the ditch, after finding out too late, there are a lot of icy spots on roads all over the northern valley.

Lt. Aaron Hummel, ND Highway Patrol: "In spots it is pretty slick."

Reporter: "Any serious accidents?"

Lt. Hummel: "We did have one rollover on U.S. 2, west of the airport and several other vehicles in the ditch."

Reporter: "No serious injuries?"

Lt. Hummel: "No serious injuries at all."

  Luckily, with all this snow the wind has not been strong enough to cause major visibility concerns.

  However, passing other vehicles, including snow plows can quickly put you into a snow fog.

Bill Collins, St. Cloud: "They're a little icy. It's hard to tell."

Reporter: "How fast were you going?"

Collins: "Around 60."

Duane Spear, Crookston: "Just came from Crookston headed up to Winnipeg."

Reporter: "How are the roads?"

Spear: "One side O.K. the other side just plugged."

 Snow covered passing lanes and very difficult driving conditions, especially on country roads, along with reduced visibility are expected throughout the night… into Tuesday.

  As of Monday afternoon snowplows were being pulled off Walsh County roads.
