The North Dakota Highway Patrol says snowy, icy conditions contributed to at least one fatality on Tuesday. Fifty-nine-year-old Ronald Waters, of Watford City, died when the semitrailer he was driving rolled in a ditch south of the city.

The National Weather Service has posted various winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories for the region through Wednesday evening, with snow tapering off throughout the day. Parts of the Dakotas got anywhere from a couple of inches to more than half a foot on Tuesday.

Forecasters say the snow will be followed by bitter cold, with low temperatures dropping to 25 below zero Friday and Saturday in some areas.
