A band of snow is expected to drape over the region and produce accumulations for many areas through much of Today. Heaviest accumulations are expected along and south of the Missouri River with less near the Canadian border and far southern portions of Wibaux and Prairie Counties. The falling snow, with north-northwest winds of 15-20 mph will lead to areas of blowing and drifting snow. These conditions are likely to cause moderate to severe stress to newborn livestock. Travel is expected to be hazardous today due to the combination of snow and wind, so if you must travel at this time take extra precautions, have an emergency kit in the car and leave plenty of extra time to safely reach your destination.
