The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have issued a Travel Alert for northeastern North Dakota due to blowing and drifting snow causing reduced visibility.

Cities included in the Travel Alert are Grand Forks, Grafton, Pembina, Cavalier, and surrounding areas.

Temperatures are expected to drop, with windy conditions, and more flakes are on the way.

A Travel Alert means conditions are such that motorists can still travel in these areas, but should be advised of rapidly changing conditions. Motorists are encouraged to reduce speeds and drive according to the conditions.

Motorists can still travel but may encounter areas of challenging winter weather driving conditions on roadways. Motorists should allow extra time to reach their destination and be alert to conditions that may make travel difficult, change rapidly, or cause travel delays.
