Fargo anticipates 10 inches of snow and strong winds

Snow no identifier

FARGO, N.D. (AP) – Snow plow drivers in southeastern North Dakota, eastern South Dakota and west central Minnesota are preparing for battle.

If forecasters’ predictions are accurate up to 10 inches of snow along with windy conditions are headed for the region.

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning to begin at midnight through Friday evening. Wind gusts of up to 55 mph are expected to cause whiteout conditions and drifting snow.

Street crews in Fargo have been out with tanker trucks pretreating main roadways with a salt brine solution. Public Works supervisor Lee Anderson tells KFGO the city will be ready to roll once the snow hits with 33 pieces of heavy equipment and more than 2,000 lane miles of streets to plow.
