GRAND FORKS, North Dakota — A blizzard warning has been issued along the northeast North Dakota and northwest Minnesota border.
Tom Grafenauer with the National Weather Service in Grand Forks says winds between 30 and 40 mph are blowing snow that fell last night in the Red River Valley resulting in near zero visibility at times. He says areas close to the Canadian border saw 6 to 8 inches of snow, but cities further south including Grand Forks and Fargo saw 3 inches or less.
Grafenauer says the storm that affected the area has moved east, but a strong cold front is now over the region dropping temperatures way below zero. He says temperatures will reach 20 below by sunrise Sunday in the northern North Dakota-Minnesota border, but wind chills could reach 50 below zero.
