Arctic front brings snow, wind and cold to the Dakotas; various weather advisories posted


BISMARCK, North Dakota — The National Weather Service is cautioning residents of the Dakotas about heavy snow, wind and bitter cold as an arctic front moves through the region.

The agency has issued winter weather advisories for snow in the northern Black Hills of South Dakota and much of the eastern part of that state. Forecasters say about half a foot of snow could fall in some areas by the end of Wednesday, and gusty winds will blow it around.

North Dakota is getting lesser amounts of snow, but bitter cold is following on the heels of the precipitation. The weather service says wind chills overnight into Thursday morning will plunge into the minus 30s in all of western and central North Dakota. Forecasters say frostbite and hypothermia can occur within minutes under such conditions.
