Wednesday Morning Storm Update

Posted: Updated:

Snow started falling early Wednesday morning and may not stop in some places until Thursday.

StormTeam Meteorologist Robert Hahn says snow will be increasing across the area through the morning and road conditions will continue to deteriorate.

Most areas will see an additional 3 to 6 inches of snow throughout the day into tonight.  Winds will also pick up throughout the day creating blizzard like conditions in some areas.

Valley Today Anchor Kyle Bosch took a drive around south Fargo about 3:30 Wednesday morning.  He says plow crews are out on main roads and interstates, but many are still snow covered.

Valley News Team's Neil Carlson reports snow and some slick spots on Highway 2 but says roads in the northern Valley are still passable.

Valley News Team's Kristi Larson talked with Fargo Street crews this morning.  They say they had salt and sanding trucks out overnight.  This morning they were sending out plow crews.

Valley Today Reporter John Trierweiler talked with state transportation crews about highways and interstates in Minnesota and North Dakota.  They say plows are out and conditions are worse in rural areas.

A Travel Alert remains in effect for central and eastern North Dakota. Areas include Devils Lake, Grand Forks, Fargo, Valley City, Jamestown, and surrounding areas.

Icy conditions, blowing and drifting snow with areas of heavy snow reducing visibility are creating hazardous driving conditions in some areas. A Travel Alert means conditions are such that drivers can still travel in these areas, but are urged to use caution.

Valley News Live will have Team Coverage of this winter storm including Live updates throughout the day.
