Hubbard County in a winter weather advisory
Hubbard County is in a winter weather advisory with snow expected much of the day.
How much snow is debatable. Anywhere from 1 to 5 inches could fall on the northern half of the county.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation says many roads from Bagley to Hallock to East Grand Forks to Moorhead are in "difficult" driving condition with heavy snow, packed snow and some "white-out" conditions.
Motorists can still travel, but are encouraged to use extreme caution, reduced speeds and drive according to the conditions, the Department of Transportation alert says.
Meanwhile, blowing snow is creating reduced visibility, sometimes no visibility, in scattered areas along U.S. Highway 2 and north of U.S. Highway 2, the North Dakota Department of Transportation says.
For that reason, the department has issued a travel alert for north-central and northeastern North Dakota, including the cities of Grand Forks, Rugby, Devils Lake and surrounding areas.
