Hubbard County will escape the high wind conditions our neighbors to the west are expecting today, but it will be blustery nonetheless by afternoon.

Central and eastern North Dakota were under a blizzard watch, which was canceled Saturday morning and replaced with high wind advisories. Travel west will be difficult as a cold Canadian front brings cooler temperatures and wind gusts up to 55 mph.

The front is expected to head into eastern North Dakota by this afternoon, the National Weather Service predicts.

Park Rapids will be on the far eastern edge of the system, meteorologists say. Since most of the snow in the region is packed, there shouldn't be too much blowing and drifting, although the winds will be bitterly cold even though today will see relatively balmy temperatures.

Here is the forecast:

Today: Mostly sunny, with a high near 34. Breezy, with a west wind 11 to 14 mph increasing to between 22 and 25 mph. Winds could gust as high as 38 mph.

Sunday: A 20 percent chance of snow. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 22. Blustery, with a west northwest wind between 18 and 23 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph.

Sunday night: A 20 per-cent chance of snow. Mostly cloudy, with a low around -2. Wind chill values as low as -17. West northwest wind between 8 and 17 mph, with gusts as high as 21 mph.

Monday: A slight chance of snow before noon, then a chance for flurries. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 6. North northwest wind between 7 and 13 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.
