Rain, snow continue to wreak havoc on holiday travel

Winter storm watch

Riddle stressed the relative rarity of a storm resulting in more than a foot of snowfall. They said to steer clear of them until the roads department can sand and salt them. The weather service suggests travelers take several precautionary measures, such as keeping a survival kit in their vehicle and possibly cancelling plans. Grand Forks is expected to see another 2-3 inches, while Fosston, Minn. could get 8-12 more inches.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Forecasters posted a blizzard warning for parts of the Dakotas and Minnesota as a major winter storm delivered heavy snow and gusty winds to the region.

Conditions are starting to deteriorate across parts of the state early Thursday morning.

It will be a colder day with highs reaching about 30 degrees with a nasty north wind of 15-30 miles per hour.

Snow will taper off Friday morning, and cold air is expected to arrive after the winter blast with an overnight low Friday of 6 below zero and a high Saturday of 10. Riddle said the accumulation Wednesday night would be rather fluffy.

Southern parts of the country, including some 13 million people, will also be affected by the inclement weather: In Texas, southwestern Arkansas and western Louisiana, there's a risk of strong winds, thunderstorms, large hail and isolated tornadoes Wednesday afternoon and evening, according to The Weather Channel.

The system causing the stormy and wintery conditions was named winter storm Eboni by the Weather Channel and was making its way east. The added moisture and "heat" will give at least half of the viewing area, including the metro, precipitation-type issues from moving from snow to rain.

Duluth, like Bemidji, is under a winter storm warning, and could get wind gusts of up to 25 miles per hour on both Thursday and Friday.
