GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — No travel is being advised in northeastern North Dakota due to blowing and drifting snow.

The state Transportation Department says the conditions are causing near-zero visibility for motorists. Cities in the advisory area include Grand Forks, Grafton, Pembina and Cavalier.

Much of the state is under a wind chill warning, with wind chills dropping into the minus 30s and 40s. The National Weather Service says daytime high temperatures are expected to be in the single digits and teens below zero.

Wind chills overnight into Tuesday are expected to be as cold as 45 below.

In addition, the NDHP has restricted travel until further notice for all permitted over-dimensional vehicles in SW and NE North Dakota due to weather and road conditions. For all other high-profile and long-load type vehicles, weather may affect travel. Take notice of changing conditions.
