BISMARCK, N.D. (KXNET) — A major snowstorm will impact much of North Dakota. The impacts depend on where you’re located. If you’re in southern and eastern ND, you’ll have the highest impacts.

Wednesday: Light to moderate snow will move through NW and north central ND. Light accumulation is possible.

Snow projections for Wednesday, 11/9/22.

There’s also a chance for freezing rain in the Bismarck area and for most of SE North Dakota starting as early as the morning hours.

Ice will continue to add up overnight into Thursday morning for much of SE North Dakota.

Thursday: This will be the most hazardous day for travel as the snowstorm moves through the state. Wind gusts could top out over 50 MPH creating blizzard-like conditions.

There are two possible scenarios for the track of this storm. Both have different impacts.

Track 1: Potential blizzard with wind gusts to 50 MPH. The snow and wind could linger longer into Friday morning.

Track 2: Lower winds with a faster exit Thursday night.

Prepare for widespread high snow amounts and blowing snow. Hazardous travel and possible road closures will be monitored by the KX Storm Team Thursday. Wherever you need to be on Friday, you’ll want to make sure you’re there by Wednesday.

Most of southern and eastern ND is favored to see 8″ or more of new snow accumulation.
