BISMARCK, N.D. — Travel conditions are deteriorating in parts of the Dakotas as the states get their second measurable snowfall in a week.
The westbound lanes of Interstate 94 were closed early Thursday between Mandan and Dickinson in southwest North Dakota, and no travel was advised in the eastbound lanes.

The National Weather Service issued winter weather warnings and advisories early Thursday for parts of the two states. As much as 10 inches of snow had fallen in southwest North Dakota and as much as 14 inches in western South Dakota.
