GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Blowing snow led to travel problems and delayed school openings in northeastern North Dakota.
The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for the region Friday morning, and authorities in Pembina County issued a no travel advisory that later was downgraded to a travel alert.
The cold front that moved through the area brought wind gusts of up to 40 mph that blew the snow around, cutting visibility in open areas to half a mile or less, and dropped wind chills to as low as 25 degrees below zero. A wind chill advisory also was issued for parts of central and eastern North Dakota.
