Travel alert issued for southwest ND
FARGO — The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have issued a travel alert for southwest North Dakota due to heavy snowfall and snow covered roads causing reduced visibility and slippery road conditions.
The NDDOT advises using caution when meeting and passing vehicles due to the limited visibility caused by snow fog.
Cities included in the travel alert are Bowman, Hettinger, Mott, New England and surrounding areas. A travel alert means conditions are such that motorists can still travel in these areas, but should be advised of rapidly changing conditions. Motorists are encouraged to reduce speeds and drive according to the conditions.
A travel alert has the potential to change to "no travel advised" status if conditions deteriorate.
WDAY meteorologists have reported they expect a light dusting in the Fargo-Moorhead area from this storm system.
