Blizzard And Winter Storm Warnings

Blizzard warnings have been issued west of the valley until 6:00 AM Friday morning. Along with a winter storm warning until 9:00 pm Thursday night, although I believe this may be extended into Friday morning similar to the blizzard warning or at least an advisory being issued.

Blowing snow and snow showers continue for today and tonight with a NW wind between 20-30 mph with gusts to 40 mph, stronger gusts just west of the valley. Although a blizzard warning is not issued for the F/M area and parts of the central and southern valley, blizzard and blizzard-like conditions are ongoing. Expect blowing snow and reduced visibility through the rest of the day and overnight. More blowing snow is possible Friday where windy conditions continue 15-30 mph from the NW with scattered snow showers which will taper off Friday night. Total accumulation looks to fall around 5-8 inches of snow in Fargo with 4-9 up and down the valley by Saturday morning. Higher amounts will be possible in localized areas due to snow banding.
