Snow is spreading across northwestern and north-central North Dakota Friday morning, with snow totals of two to five inches expected from Williston through Kenmare and from Minot to Rolla by Friday night.

There have been reports of feral swine across the state, including Billings, Rolette, Sheridan and Nelson counties as well as in the Turtle Mountains.

They tear up the native prairie as well as being a potential source of disease for our domestic livestock as well as our wildlife in the state.”
