Up to two feet of snow is expected in some spots on the Northern Plains this weekend.
A powerful winter storm is hitting some of the same spots that were badly hit by last week’s historic snowstorm.
The National Weather Service issued blizzard warnings and winter storm watches and warnings across many parts of the Northern Plains.
Heavy, wet snow could accumulate to about a foot in eastern Montana, northeastern Wyoming, western South Dakota, and western North Dakota.
The NWS says snow rates should exceed 2 inches per hour.
Snow won’t be the only thing residents will have to worry about; strong winds will also accompany this storm. Wind gusts will be up to 75mph making for near white conditions.
High winds and snow forced Interstate 90 from South Dakota to Wyoming to be closed until Sunday morning.
With wind and snow, officials are concerned about dangerous travel conditions with poor visibility and blowing snow and blowing snow. They say that traveling will be very difficult to impossible.
