Slow improvement...hazardous windchills tonight

 

Winds will slowly diminish this evening improving visibility across the region.  There

will still be blowing and drifting snow in open areas reducing visibility especially in

the Red River valley into the evening.  Colder air combined with the wind will produce

hazardous wind chills that will continue into Tuesday morning.

The city of Grand Forks has opened the Alerus center as an emergency Shelter

for those who need it.  The American Red cross is assisting in the effort.  Those

needing the shelter should enter using door number two.
