A combination of heavy snowfall and very strong winds is expected to create blizzard conditions in northeast North Dakota and northwest Minnesota.

The National Weather Service expects the snow to begin late Sunday and continue into Monday evening. The snowfall will become especially heavy late Monday morning and into the afternoon hours, with 1 to 2 inches per hour possible.

The heaviest snow is expected across eastern North Dakota, through the northern and central Red River Valley, and into northwest Minnesota. Meteorologist Tom Grafenauer says most areas can expect 10-20 inches of snow.

Thirty to 40 mph winds with gusts to over 50 mph combined with heavy snowfall will reduce visibilities to less than a quarter mile.

Meanwhile here in East Central Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin rain is likely, mainly after 2pm.
Cloudy, with a high near 50. East wind 10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%.
Tonight rain, snow, and sleet are likely, becoming all snow after 4am.
