From the National Weather Service: (posted 3/23/24 at 6:00pm)

A Severe T-Storm Watch has been expanded west, and now includes Adams, Grant, Hettinger and Sioux County. The severe weather potential should remain along and south of I-94, and into the James/Red River Valley. Hail and damaging wind are the main threats, but an isolated tornado can't be ruled out.

A severe thunderstorm watch has also been issued for parts of Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota until 11 PM CDT. Be weather aware! Have multiple ways to receive warnings and the latest forecast.

This Storm Prediction Center graphic that shows the timing for the upcoming severe thunderstorm risk this afternoon and evening.

Road Condition Terminology

The following terms will be used to relate to winter road conditions, to maintain consistency, and keep the traveling public well informed. The NDDOT will utilize these terms to inform the public about road conditions that warrant increased awareness.

TRAVEL ALERT

Motorists can still travel but may encounter areas of challenging winter weather driving conditions on roadways. Motorists should allow extra time to reach their destination and be alert to conditions that may make travel difficult, change rapidly, or cause travel delays. A TRAVEL ALERT has the potential to change to a NO TRAVEL ADVISED if conditions deteriorate.

NO TRAVEL ADVISED

Motorists should not travel due to hazardous conditions which may make it unsafe to travel. Snow plows may be pulled from the roads during severe conditions. Motorists should take NO TRAVEL ADVISED seriously as those motorists who choose to travel at their own risk may become stranded and emergency responders may not be able to reach them safely. A NO TRAVEL ADVISED has the potential to change to a ROAD CLOSED OR BLOCKED if conditions deteriorate.

ROADS CLOSED OR BLOCKED

Motorists are not allowed to travel on a closed road due to life threatening conditions. The road may be impassible or blocked. Motorists who drive past a road closure device may be fined up to $250.
