First Snow, Then Arctic Cold

(WDAY-TV/WDAZ-TV)  It won't be the kind of storm that shuts down roads, but snow coming Wednesday and Wednesday night will have impacts for travellers. Snow will begin Tuesday night over western North Dakota, spreading into eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota Wednesday, continuing Wednesday night. The snow will be light and airy but wind will be light to moderate, so no significant drifting is expected. The main impacts will be slick roads and vehicle snow fog.

Temperatures will be much colder Wednesday, with highs mostly in the teens. But much colder air will build in over the weekend. Daily high temperatures are likely to be subzero starting Sunday (Christmas Eve) for several days.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Wednesday and Wednesday night.
