Travel advisory issued for north central North Dakota
The North Dakota Department of Transportation has issued a travel alert for parts of north central North Dakota. Blowing and drifting snow is decreasing visibility in the areas of Minot, Kenmare, Bottineau, Velva, Max and surrounding areas.
Travelers in those areas are urged use extra caution in those areas and be alert for rapidly changing conditions.
A travel alert means motorists can still travel in the alert area but will encounter challenging driving conditions. Travelers should reduce speed and use extra caution. Travel alerts can result in no travel advisories if conditions deteriorate.
