Blizzard for the Dakotas and Minnesota
There is the potential for close to a foot of snow covering thousands of square miles of the West, including portions of Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, northwestern Nebraska, the Dakotas and northwestern Minnesota. Heavy snow will also graze Canada from southern Alberta to Northwest Ontario.
Very difficult, if not dangerous travel unfolded over portions of I-90 in western South Dakota and I-94 over much of North Dakota Friday.
In some areas temperatures were 40 to 50 degrees lower than highs experience Thursday, with a push of much colder air to follow.
The storm will drive freezing air into Southern California and Arizona.
