A “major” winter storm is expected to arrive soon after Thanksgiving towards the Northern location of the U.S. This storm is supposed to drop in a snowfall of 1 foot or more in different parts of the North Dakota area.
This could further create issues for the travelers who had already planned a holiday after Thanksgiving. On Thursday, the NWS or National Weather Service posted a warning for winter storm for 2/3rds of the North Dakota area that is set to start from the evening of Friday going all the way through Sunday afternoon.
The above-mentioned timeline is the peak for storm intensity as expected by the department. Light rains could also impact this region prior to the heavy downpour of snow. Apart from this, the blizzard conditions could come in on the latter half of Friday, going all the way through Saturday.
Also, the wind might gust up to a speed of 45 mph that would blow around 9 to 15 inches snow in the southern area of North Dakota. It will also bring in 5 to 11 inches of snow towards the north while creating a complete whiteout condition for the residents.
