Northern Valley Storm - Valley News Live - KVLY/KXJB - Fargo/Grand Forks

Northern Valley Storm

Posted: Updated:

  Wind gusts topping 40-miles per hour in the northern valley this morning, created near ground blizzard conditions at times. Plus, the temperature is expected to once again drop like a rock this weekend. And as the temperature falls, it's likely the wind chill out here will become potentially deadly. Its forecast the wind chill will drop down to 50 to 60-degrees below zero this weekend.

Mick Kjar, Storm Team: "These temperatures are life threatening, because exposed skin can freeze in just a few minutes. It's going to take away body heat faster than you can make it."

  One trucker, says the drive up I-29 from Fargo to Grand Forks was a rough one.

Ramiro Fernandez , Trucker: "It's the visibility. You just want to be careful out there and not cause any accidents."

Reporter: "It kind of sneaks up on you?"

Fernandez: "Yes, yes. It look very wicked out there."

Reporter: "How was the road from Thief River to Grand Forks?"

Curt Larson, Badger, MN: "Visibility was reduced on Highway 1, but I-29 was pretty good actually… little slippery, little slippery in places."

  By mid-morning the winds had settled back down in the 20-mile per hour range. However, here on I-29 and Highway 2 around Grand Forks, it's easy to find icy spots.

  This afternoon bands of snow starting rolling through the northern valley, along with mist and a bit of freezing rain.   Plus, the wind is expected to pick up speed again Friday tonight, which could quickly cause white outs and very dangerous travel conditions.

   It now appears the worst of our storm will begin rolling into the Grand Forks area around 7  o'clock Friday night.
